    Hello world. The wife has been bugging me to get a BBQ (we both left ours behind in our divorces), and I said "I want a smoker". Just got a Silver Smoker last Friday. Did a bunch of sausages on father's day, and I'm doing a couple of chickens and corn tonight. I've been eating up the forums and smoking-meat.com (no pun intended) - reading recipies and mod's. I put some temporary baffles in, extended the flue down to the grate, and added a thermometer in the lid (why isn't that included?). I put an oven thermometer on the grate and compared temps, so I know where to keep the temp without opening the lid. When I saw all the mfg gook on the inside, I lit a big fire to burn it off. Burned off the paint too :) . Should'a read the instructions. Oh well, that's why they sell high-temp paint. It's seasoning with oil on this run. This looks like it will be an awesome hobby. I can't wait to try some fatties. I'll be seeing you around. Stew

    Mmmm. We rubbed the chickens with Salad Supreme and Lemon Pepper, per a smokin' friend at work. Golden cripsy on the outside, and I couldn't believe how juicy it was. I followed Jeff's recipe for the corn, using butter and cajun seasoning. Smokey goodness! I'm hooked. That maple tree sure isn't going into the stove this winter!

    [​IMG] Welcome Stew and family; Happy Smokes and great Fatties from Sedalia, MO. You'll like the fatties just to cheer up the cook and small troops if they are hanging around. After a few fatties, the young ones start checking in every so often to see if the Fattie is being "rested and getting ready for taste testing".
