Hello all, newbie on the loose

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Long time SMF voyeur finally joined to seek help finding a part for an older MES and whamo 15 mins I got my part. Great bunch of people on here and lots of great help.

Little bit about myself, I what I like to call a smoke and choke Chili head, I love heavy smoke hot spicy rub.  have over 30 varieties of exotic peppers growing and the least hot is the Habanero up to the trinidad's and naga vipers. I even named my internet Co. Jolokia. I have several Smokers, I like the old traditional method of wood fires, low and slow cooking. I have been using the 3-2-1 rib method with a few variations, I have even developed a smoke chiller to add inline to my barrel smoker so I can smoke cheese and other low temp foods and I love to tinker and tweak equipment to suite my needs. 

I am in San Jose Ca. with access to a few decent locations that cook food the way I like but when I travel I hit all the locals.

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!
