n00b Smoker from Indy

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hello all, Ran across your nice forum community here a few days ago while drooling over some YouTube videos of ribs/brisket and fell in love. For a couple years now I have been wanting to get into the smoking side of outdoor cooking and and have gotten that kick I needed when coming across this site. I love the loads of information and how helpful everyone seems here. Cant wait until I decide which smoker I want to go with and the snow to disappear from the backyard and begin a new found passion of Smoke.

Thank you to the genius who began this community!!icon_mrgreen.gif

Wow thanks for the warm welcome from everyone. I can tell already this is a tight community. I belive I am going to start out with a gasser just for my n00bness ease of use. Once I get the itch I am sure I would convert over to a true wood burner.

First off welcome to SMF. It sounds like you are well on your way to be an outstanding new member of this fine site. You'll like it here cause there are abunch of good folks here that would just love to help you out with just about anything to do with smoking. We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
It's also free and it will give you the basics of smoking. So after all of that you just need to go grab something to smoke and if you have any question just post them here and we will answer it quickly so you don't have any mishaps with your smoke.

I Would Highly Suggest Reading these posts on Food Safety by bbally.

This thread will tell you basically everything you need to know and the man explaining it is
both a ServSafe Instructor and a HACCP Instructor.


Here you can get the 2009 USDA Food Safety Guide from his site.

How to post Qview to Forum:

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

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

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