New guy from North Carolina

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone, name is Keith and I reside in Rockwell, NC(near Charlotte).  I have been researching smoking meat and grilling for quite a while now and came up on this fourm, I have not bought my smoker just yet but have decided on a Okie Joe from Lowes, it fits my budget.  I'm not new to smoking, have helped with my volunteer FD with smoking pork shoulders on some brick made pits and helped my brother-in law on his propaned fired converted oil drum cooker but all these experiences have been helping someone else not by myself so just looking to soak up all of y'alls knowledge, my hobbies are restoring old classic cars, deer hunting and fishing. Thanks

Welcome from Canada, Keith.

Hello Keith, and welcome to the forums!  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.

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!
