Thread Starter 

Hello everyone, my name is Kevin and I've just this year gotten into really trying to smoke meat.  I've found tons of very useful tips and info on this site.  I have a little Brinkman barrel style charcoal grill that I use with a water pan over half and coals below that and meat on the other half.  I know its not ideal but it has actually worked out really good so far.  I've done spare ribs, brisket, country ribs, corned beef brisket, and a chuck roast on it and only problem I've had so far is getting too much salt in the seasonings/rubs I've used.  I'm looking forward to trying new things and making the things I've already done even better.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Commercial Rubs do have a lot of salt in them.  There are bunches of recipes here that are not as salty.  Browse around and you will probably find one that you like.


We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. 

If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.


If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!


If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
