New to here and to smoking, very excited!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello I'm from Ontario, Canada. I have been interested in the art of smoking for a very long time now. Especially being here, there is a very very limited amount of BBQ restaurants in the area and very few (actually none) restaurants that smoke meat. I can't even find an individual in the area that know's anything about smoking or has even attempted. So I'm about to break the mold and try to give it a shot! I look forward to searching out all the info i can find. I found some info online about it and did give it a shot a few days ago. Had some rough patches and some things that didn't go as planned, but I look forward to bouncing the idea's off of you experts in hopes of working out the kinks. Go figure, I didn't find out about this forum until AFTER I tried it lol.

I don't have an actual charcoal smoker yet (which is my goal) as my backyard is very very small so it'll have to wait for now. Plus there's not alot of them in the area for sale. I'm using my gas grill with a smoker box. I am also on day 1 of the ecourse so I'm looking forward to finishing it. Thanks, and I look forward to learning from you all!

There are lots of people who are here to help you with any questions you man have. So ask away. Also there is a ton of information on this site if you can cruise through a bunch of posts and read up. Once you start pumping out some good Q you will never look at that BBQ joint the same. I can't really even eat BBQ around here any more because they just don't add up any more. You will have all of you neighbors drooling in no time and you will have to start smoking extra stuff because they will all be coming over when they smell the smoke. haha Good luck and welcome to the forum!

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.
