Thread Starter 
Hi - I am Don in KC, MO. Been smoking for about 7 years and just now found SMF. We compete is some smaller local competitions, but mainly just cook for fun and friends.

I use a Brinkman offset, Weber Bullit and recently acquired Good One Ranger.

Already found some great stuff on this site and took my first try at Moinks last weekend.

BTW, Tulsa is part of my sales territory and I am in that area a couple of times each month.

Look forward to the ongoing adventures in cooking!!!

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
