Hi SMF'ers.
My name's Ron and I'm from Arlington, Tx. 55 yrs. old, 2 kids,(grown & gone), till they hear I'm firin' up the smoker, then they somehow find their way back home. I have a Brinkmann SmokinPit...is this the ECB? Any way...Just a beginner, 3 briskets, half-a-dozen baby backs and 1 turkey and some how they all came out fantastic...mainly because of what I've read here, thanks! Working on doin' some mods that I picked up here so I can say I have a "modified" ECB.
Lookin' forward to lots of ideas and post and QVIEWS!
Thanks Again! icon_smile.gif

Welcome to the forum! I am new as well and hail from Austin. I use a SFB pit and am learning tons from the folks on this site as well. I smoked my first Chuckie last Saturday and it turned out great. Looking forward to hearing more from you.

Ron welcome to SMF glad you decided to join in. The ECB is a vertical smoker so its not what you have. If you hold your cursor over any of the abbreviations that are in the bold colors it will tell you what the abbreviation stands for. Have fun and happy smoking

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.

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.

Thanks for the warning Roller, it's already starting to take away from what I spend on Bass fishing but I have waaaay too much tackle anyway. Maybe I could could combine them.....anyone ever smoke bass?
I wish there was a "General Discussion" area, I'm up at 4 am and would like to just get on and say good mornin' and talk about what's going on for the day, a really good way to get to know people better. I suppose I could go to every forum and post "GOOD MORNIN, SMF"...well maybe not! :)
