Another Illinois Join

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just wanted to say a quick hello. I've been lurking on the site for a few months now, so wanted to officially get my first post out there. I'm in the Peoria area, and still pretty new to this hobby.

I've done one of each of the big hitters (brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken, and a fattie) on my 18.5" WSM, and look forward to continued improvement in rounds 2, 3, and so on. Thanks for all the help this site has provided so far.

First off welcome Jedorf 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 Your New Addiction

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.

I was thinkin the same thing

It seemed like everyday last week there was someone from IL signing up.

I was wondering if there was a way to actually sort usernames by state and actually see how many active memebers are from IL.
