    Here comes another at ya. :)

    Hi gang, my name is Mojo and I am a resident of Central, Florida ( where it never snows ).

    I am not going to come onto this forum where a bunch of experts reside and blow smoke ( no pun intended ) in your ears about my knowledge base in grilling and smoking. I will readily admit that unless it is a cigarette, cigar or a kitchen I know next to nothing about smoking. What I know about smoking meats you could write down on a gum wrapper.

    Because of my lack of knowledge when it comes to smoking I have joined this forum to get up to speed. I own a char-griller duo ( gas / charcoal ) grill and just last week bought a masterbuilt smoker.

    I am interested in learning the art of smoking sausages as well as other meats. I think I came to the right place as I have a feeling this forum is loaded with knowledgeable people.

    Just wanted to introduce myself and let you all know, another darn newbie just joined your ranks.

    Happy smoking,

    Hey there Mojo, welcome aboard. You seem very enthusiastic[​IMG]. I think you will like it here. Many many great and knowledgeable people here to help you along your smoking journey.
    Rule #1. Have a good time
    Rule #2. If you have a question, no matter how trivial or silly or dumb you may think it is, ASK ,ASK, ASK. Someone will always jump in and do their best to answer it.
    If your really interested in learning the art of smoking meat and sausages, then do yourself huge favor. Pick up a copy of a book called "Great sausage recipes and meat curing" by Rytek Kutas. The 4th edition. Is is considered here to be the bible of the meat smoking world. Very well written so an absolute novice will understand it.

    I look forward to seeing your input and hopefully some great smokes in the very near future.[​IMG]
