Hello from New Orleans.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I am a newbie from New Orleans.  I have been smoking meats for a few years with a Brinkman charcoal / water chest style smoker.

I won some rib cook-offs using it and it got me hooked on smoking meats.

I have upgraded to a Masterbuilt Pro gas smoker.  Still getting used to it... especially trying to keep the temperature from rising too quickly and too high.  I'll figure it out -- and maybe find some help from this forum of experienced smokers.


Happy to have found a site with some practical knowledge about smoking meat.

welcome1.gifto SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 


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!
