Newbie from Wolcott NY

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello all, I'm John and new to the site.  I just purchased a new Lang 48!  It looks great but I have alot to learn which is why i'm here.  I choose the screen name Skeeter-Smoke not because of the skeeters here in this part of NY but because I enjoy skeet shooting! 


I am new to smoking and look forward to many good interactions.  I started by buying Jeff's sauce and rub recipies!

This site has tons of info.

I would suggest you spend some time reading all the different forums and the WIKIs.

Then use the handy dandy search tool for specific interests!!

 Take the free E-Course too..  http://www.smoking-meat.com/smoking-basics-ecourse.html

Have a great day!!!

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

Welcome to our SMF family!!  I've had several relatives from Wolcott on my wife's side of the family; I'm originally from upstate NY; Adams Center, dad had a meat market/grocery store there, Fassett's Quality Foods, smoked hams, bacons, chickens, turkeys, etc.

Congratulations on getting the Lang, it's a creme d'la creme unit!  Post lots of Qview on your smokes, we love to drool!  We also contribute heavily to supporting your new-found addiction, lol!
