    Howdy y'all! :)

    I'm new to Smoking meat! My father-in-law makes some great smoked meat meals and I am always talking his ear off about how much I love the flavors! He got me a masterbuilt 30" electric smoker for Christmas 2 years ago and all I have done is season it.

    I'm here to learn how to smoke meat the right way and to do it in a way that the whole family will enjoy! Looking forward to learning from SMF gurus!

    Thanks for welcoming me!

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Shamey Shamey!  Get that smoker cooking!!!!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

    Boy, are you at the right place!

    I only started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. There is so much information in the postings you could never try all the great ideas in a lifetime. The members are generous with their experience and have given great answers to all questions.

    One of the ways I have learned the most is posting my projects with pictures. I have received great suggestions, ideas and support.

    I hope you like the forum as much as I do.

    Welcome to SMF.
