Hello from Maine

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi. My name is Jack. Retired in Oct, sold our house & moved to our place in the western mountains of Maine. 16 miles from Canada. Loving & living stress free. I do work a couple days a week tending bar for a little "fun money". I am looking to get a smoker to add to my outdoor cooking. This is a good place to start as far as I can see. Having a good time reading through the forums & gathering info. Thinking I'll start with an electric smoker & go from there. Might be all i need.....we'll see. Thanks in advance for all the info provided here.

:welcome1: Glad to have you on board lot of great guys and gals on here with tons of info.Take time to read on Home page Initial Greeting it contains a lot of helpful info. You will need to decide what type smoker you want such as char coal, gas or electric. Then ask question about that type smoker. Enjoy a wonderful new habit once you start there is no turning back.

Welcome from SC, Jack. It's good to have you on this great site. I know you will enjoy it. Since you are in Maine, there should be plenty of wood around for the picking. You might want to consider an offset stick burner. They're great fun to work with and give your meat the very best flavor that can be had. Do yourself a favor and do some research on them

Good luck and good smokin', Joe

Hey Jack welcome to the site! I'm jealous of your newfound stress free living! I still have plenty of years working for the man before I can go find my own paradise in the woods
