Hi, my name is Mike and I live in Ocala, Fl and I am new to smoking. I recently purchased a Master Forge 30" electric smoker on clearance that I could not pass up. So far I have tried ribs, chicken quarters, bologna chub and a ribbed pork loin. Looking forward to learning a lot. Thanks.

So you'll like this place for there are alot of really good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Now I see you've been smoking so now you just need to keep it up and learn how to post up some pictures for us                                                                                                                                    Welcome to your new addiction.

Thank you everyone for your warm hospitality and welcoming me. It just reinforces my recommendation of this site to a customer I had the other day. he was looking at a char griller duo with the side box attachment the other day and wanted some advice on smoking. I told him what little bit knew and referred him to this site. And told him how helpful and pleasant every one is here and all the information and experience everyone shares. I look forward to sharing photos of my past smoking endeavors and plan on many more. Thanks again to you all.
