Thread Starter 
Howdy all! The name is Mitch. I just yesterday picked up my new Masterbuilt vert propane smokehouse (MBP)?? Looking forward to complement my fresh and semi-dry sausage making and also to refine and add to my yankee Q-skills.

Nutmeg State - must be next to the state of confusion! Welcome to SMF Mitch! Glad to have you with us. I've never done sausage, or should I say I havent tried sausage...yet. May need to call upon your knowledge. We all like pictures here, what we call Qview. Post anything and everything - no one will complain too loudly.

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.

Welcome from one CT Yankee to another

Welcome Mitch, This is one of the best sites around. Take the 5 day smoking course even if you have been smoking for awhile. Then purchase Jeff rub & sauce recipe, all the monies go back into site to help keep it up and running. I'm located in West Haven. Grandpajohn

Thanks one and all...

Yes, Virginia there is a Nutmeg state... BUT it isn't my birth state.. I am from 6burgh, Pa. Born n raised.. Oh I'm sorry I meant to say Pittsburgh....
I came here in 1978 the day before the big blizzard to attend sub school while in the Navy. After that I picked up a boat here in New London until EOS. Worked as a submarine builder, married a local and had 2 daughters, divorced and remarried over in Russia (no mail order) LOL. Been a votech teacher for the last 18 years. I camp and fish, do jerky and make my own beer..... and waaste alot of time on MMO games.. LOL.

Anyhoo, thank all of you for the grand welcome. I do plan on picking up some rub and sauce tho and a bunch of Q-Intel.

Just before I wrote this I finished assembling the smoker (MBVERT-PROPANE)...Oh and I bought the smoke daddy middle sized one. Gonna plumb it to the MBP and the 7-1 for cold schmokin... Oh well thats who I am
