post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello to All,

My name Is Herman I am a 911 dispatcher and I LOVE to Cook on my Grill. I have a Outlaw with a side smoke box from Char Griller and I love it I want to move up one day and have a pull behind Custom Smoker. I am all about smoking some Meat. I will just go out side on my days off and fire up the smoker and throw a few Boston butts on the smoker and sit back and wait for them to be done and then the EMS crew on that night will have Dinner. well that is all about me I just love to grill.Take care and please be safe out there and talk to everyone soon.

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
