    Hello folks,

    I've really enjoyed the eating side of smoked meat for many years and now, thanks to the purchase of a large towable smoker by our Cub Scout Pack I'm getting into the cooking side in a big way. As the Assistant Cubmaster I'm going to be one of the guys in charge of turning our our virginal, brand spanking new smoker into a smoky barbeque machine. We plan on using our smoker to feed a bunch of hungry kids at scout events as well as using it during events at our sponsoring organization. I've got a lot to learn and I'm sure I'll be reading through many of the threads on this forum for good ideas. There is a long tradition of smoked meat in this neck of the woods so I'm really happy there's a place like this to go for help.

    I'll put up a picture or two of our smoker later this weekend, we just got it and still have to season the monster.

    Welcome to the SMF, Tim. With all the stuff available on the site, it won't be long before your smokes are THE attraction at the cub scout functions!

    Bob brings up a great point about involving the scouts in the process. It's definitely fun and easy enough for them to contribute to.
