How about another new guy?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hi my name is Will. I live right outside Sacramento California, in a little town called Folsom.

I was looking for some info on this smaker I got from my parents and eneded up here. I like the site so much I joined up and posted.LOL Anyway I'm completely new to smoking. as in I'm just trying to find out how to set my smoker up and so on. I bbq at least 5 times a week so I'm an avid griller but this is new and challenging to me so I figured I would start working on this type of cooking. Now off to figure out how to setup and what I will need for my smoker.

Stupid me I have a Brinkman Gourmet Electric Smoker. If anyone can steer me in the right direction, I'd apperciate it.

Welcome Will, from another newbie-(myself).
be sure to sign up for the FREE 5 day course on smoking-it's a lot of info and well recommended. If you have any questions, 'i'm sure someone here will guide you in the right direction. I'm still in the question stage myself, but lots of nice people here, and tons of information!
welcome-and smoke on!

Welcome Will. It won't be long till someone will direct you with that smoker. I was totally new and it only takes a few days and you will have more information from this forum than you could find anywhere else.
Good luck

You know you've reached the point of no return when you find yourself at the store admiring the meat just to see what you should smoke next. I know when I go to the store anymore my husband calls at least once to find out what's taking so long. Especially if I just went for milk. The site is amazing and truly a wonderful group of people here. Full of info and always willing to help out!

Me and my parents raise a few cows and pigs a year to be eaten so I really only go to the store for non beef and pork. I'm sure I'll be that way though also. I have tried some very strange things on the bbq. My wife just looks at me some times and rolls here eyes. and says "Your really not going to do that are you?"
