Who said smok'in was bad for you?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone!
Just stopped in to say hey and to admit that I have an addiction to smok'in. icon_confused.gif I figured that if I'm gonna feed this addiction I might as well learn how to do it well.
I'm pretty much a beginner although I have done a few smokes of brisket, chicken and ribs with pretty good results. Looking forward to trying my hand at some bacon as well as some of the delicious recipes I've benn seeing in th forums.
Would love to get to a point where I would feel comfortable helping others in the forums as well cause I know I will have done my fair share of asking questions before long.
Really looking forward to getting to know and make friends here.

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.
