Hello; new guy from Indiana here

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I'm a long time charcoal griller and have dabbled in smoking with indirect heat and soaked wood chips in a old pan on the coals. The results have actually been pretty good, but it is tedious and I want to do it better.

I also make my own sausages, and I want the ability to cold smoke cure them before freezing. I also want to cold smoke fish and cheese.

I have already begun my project of a refrigerator conversion, and I will post some details about it in that specific forum.

This site has been a wealth of information and reading through old posts and seeing other builds has been a great help in making my decisions.

Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us. This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

For those of you new to Smoking, be sure to check out Jeff's 5 Day Smoking Basics eCourse.
Click Here it's "FREE" ... 5 Day eCourse

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.

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.
