    Just wanted to introduce myself (and Hubby) --

    We're still very new to smoking meat but jumping in with both feet! We played with a friend's electric Masterbuilt last week and loved the results SO MUCH that we decided to get our own smoker.

    But we're such die-hard DIY'ers that we're ending up building one instead! (I already posted about how to add a thermostat...)

    I'll post a picture of our 'new baby' in a few days -- She'll be ready for a test run any minute!

    Greetings to the both of you, and Welcome to the 'community'.

    Enjoy your stay at
    Settle in and have fun.
    Any questions, plenty of experts... and make yourself at home.

    I created a 32x32 Desktop icon for SMF members if they want it. Just download it, UNzip it to anywhere (but remember where)... then if you have a current icon you are using just right-click/ 'properties'/change icon/ and go look for where you unzipped it and click it. Then name the icon what ever you want... obviously I named mine Smoking Meat Forums
    If you don't have a desktop icon you can easily create one using this icon if you want.
    It is transparent so your background should just show threw!!
