Noob Pulled The Trigger...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone-

 

I just pulled the trigger and ordered myself a WSM 22.5 cooker.  I can't freakin wait for it to get here.  I've been over here salivating over the ABT threads thinking about the goodness that will come off that bad boy in the near future.

 

This will be my first "smoker", but I've been doing "outdoor" cooking for a long time now. 

 

Just wanted to stop in and say hello, and say thanks to all the folks who contribute here.  I've gained a lot of knowledge just from hanging out here and reading through all the posts. 

 

Thanks,

 


Jeremiah

Welcome to the forum Jeremiah! You will really like the WSM, they are super user friendly and the 22.5" has a lot of room. Just remember they run a little hot the first half dozen smokes or so.

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.


This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.
 

Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.
 

We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
this is the place. 
 

Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  


Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.
 

Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa
