Just take some time and explore some of the threads. You will find just about every kind of meat and poultry you can imagine. If you don't find what you are looking for, just ask. There will be someone to help you in no time.

Once again, welcome. enjoy!!

Thanks again for all of the info. I did sign up for Jeff's e-course today. As for the things Have tried / done.
1st i tried Jerky <-- not so good.
2nd whole chicken <-- really not so good.
3rd Ribs <-- ate them but not what i hoped for.
4th Found SMF <-- Great find!!
5th made some mods. Firepan mostly. Legs, vent, grate.. Better but I have some ideas to make one from scratch Thursday morning
6th Pork shoulder <-- best pulled pork I have ever made. (now if i can just learn to make my own sauce. icon_cry.gif
7th (tonight) smoked my first fatty. <-- LOVED IT!!!! My son and I almost at all 2#'s. And it was just going to be for our snack tonight.

Thats about all I have done. I still want to add a couple of thermometers at the rack levels.... Maybe this weekend.
