Hello from Pittsburgh

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I came across this site while researching electric smokers. My plan was to find a smoker to make jerky. (bigtime hunter and fisherman) I was so blown away by the info. and knowledge of the members, I decided to join and give smoking a try. I've already smoked spare ribs, with decent results, a little to much smoke, but better then any I've grilled. Now I getting ready to try my first deer jerky in a Master Built Electric smoker. I've alway made jerky in the oven before. Wish me luck. I'm also toying with the idea of Smoking the Christmas ham, but am still undecided...I come from a family of 7 (5 brothers) and boy can we eat. I'd be dis-owned and possibly dis-membered if I screwed it up!! PDT_Armataz_01_23.gif LOL.

I look forward to learning and have already read the smoking basics by email. ANyway, Hi to all.

Welcome to SMF! I use an MES and have been pretty happy with what it can do. There are several other folks around here who use them too.

Make yourself at home and look around. There's lots to see as you've already found out.

Dismembered, huh!! Well that is pretty drastic. Wouldn't want that to happen. LOL

If in doubt, you may want to wait until you are a little more confident before putting on the 'big show'. On the other hand, you have time to ask questions and get info and do your research. I think you can pull it off.

There is a thread for just about any type of meat you want to smoke. So decide if it is ham or turkey or just what. Then go to that thread and ask away. There will be a number of people there to help you out, in no time.

In addition, the left hand margin has a number of articles that address different subjects. Browse through that. some very good information there.

I know it soulds confusing right now, but if you follow, step by step, the help you receive, you will do just fine. Your brothers will miss all the fun of dismembering you!!

Nice to have you and good luck with your smoke.
