Greetings from a newbie smoker

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey all. My name is Chris from Cincinnati. About the only thing I know how to smoke is cigarettes, but I'm taking my smoker out for the first time this weekend.

When trying to get some advice from my co-worker, he said "Get thee to the Smoking Meat Forums!!". So here I am. Hoping to gain some good advise so I don't accidentally poison my family.

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.

Welcome to SMF Chris. Now, you make sure you smoke that poison with some hickory or mesquite before serving it up. (Just Kidding.) You won't poison anyone because of the plethera of information floating around this place. I am in a smoke zone & only been here a couple of months, I think. Anyway, Glad to have ya!!!!!
