Hello from So. Illinois

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
My name is Rick,I am looking forward to learning new things from everyone on this board. What a great find by my buddy YT,thanks YT. I have been grilling for 20+ years and smoking for real for about 3 years. I have a Char-Griller smoking pro with a side firebox. I had been smoking on my basic Brinkman grill by indirect heat and smoke pouches or chips.As you can tell by my board name I am a huge Steeler fan. I also am a die hard Cub fan and a duffer,don't consider myself a golfer yet.Thanks to the Mods and board owners who keep this thing running on a daily basis. Here's to a great new smoking season,smoke on my brothers smoke on!

First off welcome Rick 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.

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.

You have gone and done it now! Stumbled into a whole nest of grazed smokers. Next thing you know you will be getting funny looks from your family while you snap pics of the excellent Q you just smoked.
