Sunshine State Newbie, New to SMF, new to smoking

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone,

 

My name is Erik.  I hail from East Central Florida, think Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach area.

 

I am brand new to smoking meats, not so new to eating them.  I got started a few weeks ago doing a couple of smaller pork picnic (two with a total weight of 16.5 lbs) on my gas grill that I used foil and foil pans to temporarily modify to smoke.  The apple wood smoked pulled pork turned out pretty well and I got many compliments at the tailgate party (My colleges first NCAA Div. 2 game.)  I enjoyed it, didn't even need sauce it was so moist.  Needless to say that got me hooked.

 

I am looking forward to learning a good bit about the craft and I may use some of my mechanical ability to build my own smoker(s).

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 TulsaJeff. 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!
