Re-introducing myself from Central OH

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hey all, 


Been a member of the forums for awhile, but inactive due to real life events, so I haven't been able to do as much smokin' as I would like. th_crybaby2.gif  Hopefully I can start doing more and more now that we are empty nesters.


Got a Char-Griller Smokin' Pro w/SFB for fathers day and have only had the chance to seasson it so far.  Lookin' forward to my first smoke on it next weekend of some delicious BB's and a couple of beer can chickens for the family coming to visit for the 4th. 


I also have 30" MES that I started out with, but wanted to get into charcoal smoking.  Looking forward to learning alot about the new smoker and see what mods I may have to make to force it to run the way I would like.

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 back....and good luck with the new smoker.  I have a Char-griller myself.  These days I use it more for grilling, as being on SMF has casued me to accumulate a few more toys.  Not complaining mind you, in fact, I'm quite happy and proud of it!
