Hello From Central Indiana

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey Everyone.


I have been looking around your site for a few weeks and finally got around to making my own account.


I have been smoking with my dad since I was little (mainly sausage) and have been doing my own stuff for about 5 years now. Mostly whole hogs for large parties, etc.


Starting my own 325 gallon RF build which I started a thread in the RF build section. I am eager to hear what the experts haev to say about my ideas.


I would say I am quite experienced when it comes to wood working, general building, & mechanical skills but am just now stepping into the world of metal fabrication. I have recently purchased a small wire feed welder and am quickly learning "neat welding". Growing up around farming, our only welding consisted of a stick welder "bubble gum" welding (as I call it) heavy metal farm machinery where appearence was not a concern.


I am here to learn whatever I can and offer my advice wherever possible.

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!

Welcome aboard, Andrew!  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.  Looking forward to your input here, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer.  Good luck with your RF build project!  I'll be sure to check that thread out (although I'm sure not handy enough to offer anything constructive :biggrin:).
