Glad you joined the group. The search bar at the top of any page is your best friend.
About anything you wanna know about smoking/grilling/curing/brining/cutting or slicing
and the list goes on has probably been posted. Remember to post a QVIEW of your smokes.
We are all smoke junkies here and we have to get our fix. If you have questions Post it

are so many different ways to make great Q We all have our own taste.

Happy smoken.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors!

 

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!

Welcome aboard, Mike!  This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc.  There are plenty of friendly, knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another.  When you can't find the answer you're looking for, just ask and someone here will have the answer.

Welcome. You'll love this forum. I just started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. I have learned so much from the kind members. They are generous with answers to your questions and there are a ton of great ideas in the postings. One of the ways I learned the most was posting my projects with pictures and I always got support, advice and suggestions for differing ways to do things.

 

I am sure you will love this forum as much as I do.

HI RON, THANKS, WE WILL SEE IF WE CAN MAKE IT.. I WILL LET YOU KNOW ..WILL FOLKS BE COOKING THERE ,OR BRINGING FOOD ALREADY COOKED..??

Mike.. we all bring our own smoker and cook there... If that's a problem, I'm sure somebody will have room in their's... or if it's even easier to cook at home and bring with you, we can just warm it up for ya.... A few of the reasons for bringing a smoker is... This way everybody gets see how other smokers perform to help with any future purchases... To see how other people cook to gain further knowledge or for a tip or trick or 2... .. Sit around the campfire (and smoker) and tell a bunch of "stories"... (ie..... MAN.... You should have seen the 20lb bass I caught).

As Ron said... even if it's only for a day (Sat. being the "Competition day"), come join us
