    Wanted to give the obligatory hellos and introduction. Just picked up a MES40 last week to replace my side burner that I've been "borrowing" from my Father for the last 3 years. Got tired of constantly tending to the fire as it seems to be a weakness of mine to keep any type of fire actually burning.

      Anyways did a couple pieces of fish already and some veggies and definitely a whole lot easier.

     First off welcome MX to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:

    then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

    here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.

    Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again

    Welcome to Your New Addiction

    Thanks everybody. I've been lurking for a while and taken away several good recipes and techniques so far. Hoping somewhere along they way I can contribute something myself.
