Newbie to the board

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Chris Meredith , form Portland Oregon. I am an engineer @ Intel Corp, I spend my weekends fiddling around with anything that creates Smoke(Diesel Trucks, Pyrotechnics, Smoking Foods, and the Boy Scouts).
I have a New Braunsfels Smoker, Brinkman Water Smoker and a Enviro Bistro Gas Grill. I would like to believe i am an Adept smoker, I have smoked all types of food including making my own Chipotle peppers. I once got warned by the condo management (Living in Westboro Mass at the time) that i couldn't use my grill when there was 24" of snow on the ground. I believe that cooking over Charcoal is a year round event, not just for the summer time I make my own charcoal to help with the seasoning of foods and other hobbies of mine.
I am always looking for new ways to cook food, and am always willing to try new options

First off welcome Chris to SMF. 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.

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.
