Newbie in Southern Illinois

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hey everybody

 

I live in southern Illinois about 20 min south of SIU Carbondale. i just got a Master forge vertical gas smoker. I smoked a pork butt this summer in a treager that was in the garage of a cottage we rented and got hooked. seeing as i cant afford to buy a treager right now and i acquired this gas job from a friend for free i am a little to excited. my wife has taken to calling me a dork and saying she is a little worried. until i smoked two pork butts this weekend in it for my sons birthday party and they turned out great. Beginners luck I'm sure. just from reading through the forums i have already learned a ton and hope it shows on my next smoke.

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 "SMF User Guidelines" .....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!
