New to smoking - Chicago, IL

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Just got my first smoker today from Bass Pro. It's a Landmann Smokey Mountain Series (propane - 6 racks). I've done a lot of grilling and deep frying, but have never smoked anything before. Planning on doing a Turkey and Ham for X-mas. Gonna need some help.

I've been snooping around this site for a couple weeks and have found tons of great info. Can't wait to get started.

Roll Tide!

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...
