Howdy, I'm TheRooster just getting into Smoking. My wife bought me a Smokehouse 3 rack electric smoker for Christmas. I know absolutely nothing about smoking so looking forward to your help and suggestions. I am a USMC VetPDT_Armataz_01_36.gif served in OIF got home in Nov. 2007. I have a wife and 2 kids. I love hunting and fishing have a small farm, 5 acres. I currently work in Law Enforcement. Pleasure to be here.

Welcome Rooster, great to have you on board with us. So you don't know a thing about smoking huh? Well neither did any of us when we started. The important thing is you found us. No such thing as a silly or stupid question here, if you need to know something, by all means ask. PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
Look around here, find some topics that interest you, read up on them, and in no time, you will be turning out some great BBQ!

Glad your back from OIF, thanks for your time and service, very much appreciated.
Where abouts in the country are you at?
Well that's all I have for now. Again, welcome, and I and the others look forward to your input and smokes in the very near future.biggrin.gif

I would call 5 acres a decent farm, not quite so small.
Lots of gardeners (and smokers) on the site, love sharing experiences and info on both.

Happy smokes, and welcome to the site.

Need help in Okla.

I need to know from some of you top smokers what I should do. I cleaned up and put the rub on six Babybacks a large Prime Rib and a big Ham they have been the refrigator for 5 days merinating.. We had a big blizzard here and my guest could not make it over so I didn't smoke any. Question is can I freeze this bunch of fine meat before smoking or after smoking.
Thanks Hawkeye
