Hi from Guthrie, OK

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Smoked meats have always been my favorite, but I've never had the opportunity to try my hand at it until now. I just bought a 30" MES, and I'm so excited about it that I can't decide what to cook first.

I've been researching recipes and techniques for a while now, but I just stumbled across these forums yesterday, and all I can say is "WOW!" I'm completely impressed with the wealth of information and the number of friendly and active contributors here. I look forward to this being my one-stop learning resource, and I'm grateful to everyone responsible for keeping this place alive.

P.S. "mythmaster" is my username on several tech support forums -- it originated on one where I help people build Home Theater PC's using Linux and MythTV.

Being a newbie to the Linux world, I am impressed. Welcome to the forum Bret, er, Mythmaster. And your problem won't be "Where to start smoking" it will be "What can I smoke next!!???." (Remember, as a rule, pets do not qualify as smoking meat products. However, if you happen across a stray...........)

Thanks, everyone! I've decided to christen it this weekend with a Prime Rib (if I can find a good cut), so I'll be asking for tips in another thread.

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.
