  1. Hey everyone.... Thanks for having me.[​IMG]

    It is safe to say that I am a noob. Think of someone that doesn't know anything about smoking meat, and he knows more than me !!![​IMG] But, I am a quick reader and I see this place has a ton of great info. I have wanted to dive into smoking world for a long time but have put it off for years. Then low and behold, i run across this site and now I am motivated.[​IMG]

    I currenty live in Indy, but I was raised in Southern Indiana.(Evansville)

    I look forward to learning and having something good to eat while enjoying my other hobby..... Bourbon. (150 bottles and counting...)

    Hope to see y'all 'round.

    Welcome to the site Scott.
    My Sister and her Husband just started smoking (got them a smoker for Christmas) so they have been asking me millions of questions. I tell them the same thing I say now, please...any question no matter how small always make sure to ask, so many great folks here that are more than happy to help and we would all rather answer 100 questions before letting a fellow smoker have a bad experience.

    Great to have you hear with us Scott. You certainly found the best place there is to learn the art of smoking meat. As you can see, there is a ton of info on here, but more important than that, are the great people here that will personally help you in learning this craft. Always remember, no such thing as a silly or stupid question, we all started somewhere.
    I look forward to seeing your input and successful smokes in the very near future.[​IMG]

    Welcome Birdman. Pull up a chair and commence with your new addiction. Once you get started, you and your family won't want to stop the smokin.
    There's alot of cool and knowledgeable peeps here so get ready for a good time.

  6. Hey Birdman, welcome from one noob to another. I recently found this forum and have already spent countless hours reading up, gotten me in trouble a time or two with the wife. Havent put anything over the coals just yet, but soon. Take the advice of others and do the 5 day course and just read, read, read.

    So, are you a bourbon collector or drinker who has ammased a nice stash? I have roughly 150 or so bottles in my basement, some are empty JD bottles and the rest are sealed, mostly Makers Mark. Those of which are sealed are never to ever be opened.

    Welcome to the board

    Welcome to SMF, Scott. Glad you joined us.
  9. I call myself a collector, butI believe true collectors keep their bottles sealed. I can't do that. They are meant to be drank and I will....

    Thanks for the welcome everyone.

    I have signed up for the 5 day course, and the hunt for my first rig is on.

    Thanks again.....
