Beginner from Ontario

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hows it going SMF? My name is Ryan, I am a beginner smoker from Southern Ontario. I have been using a charcoal bbq for a couple years now but wanted to go further. I am an avid hunter that is looking for new ways to cook my meat when I came across the Ugly barrel smoker. So a buddy of mine and I decided to build one this past weekend. We tried to cook a large piece of beef immediately and realized we have quite a bit to learn yet. I am hoping to gain valuable knowledge from this forum. I already have gained some by reading a few of the posts. Thank you

Hi, Ryan from a fellow Canadian. I just started smoking last year and didn't really start to enjoy it until I found this forum. You will find lots of information to get you on the right road to start smoking from the nice people on this forum.


A word of warning, smoking can become addictive.

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!
