HEY DUTCH, IM NEW HERE AND WAS JUST LOOKING FOR SOME ANSWERS TO SOME ROOKIE QUESTIONS, IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND. WHAT IS A GOSM? AND ALSO WHAT IS THE OTBS? APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.
I moved your post to the Roll Call section so you can get a proper welcome to the forum. A GOSM is a Great Outdoor Smokey Mountain smoker. OTBS stands or Order of the Thin Blue Smoke there is a section on the site dedicated to it. Welcome to the site glad you decided to join us you'll find lots of good info and some great recipes here. Have fun and happy smoking
Welcome to the SMF, if you know Dutch, you've got to be an alright person. If you go to Wiki, then click on Browse All Wikis, then click on Acronyms, you'll see a listing that might help you out with some buzz words. It's all good my friend.
Welcome to the SMF forum, Chopper. Now, the LSU tigers are a good team & smoking is a good thing. I hope you enjoy your stay with us & have fun while you are doing it. And don't forget to TURN DOWN YOUR CAPS. LOL. It makes it look as if you are shouting.
First off welcome Chopper to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:
then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview
here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.
Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again
Welcome to Your New Addiction
thanks for the warm welcome boys and girls! and sorr for the caps, didn't mean to yell.lol. really looking forward to dropping in from time to time to get yall's opinions and advice. maybe in time be able to share some of my own. well i guess first thing is first maybe a little intro. is necessary. i love to grill! love it. grill 365 if i could. well almost due. always wanted to get into smoking. sad turn of events, but my grandfather passed away and my grandmother wanted to me to have his smoker. so i am looking very forward to using that sucker in the future. on to the equipment. it is a BBQ Grillware vertical gas smoker. have read on here several times and have already followed the advice of bending over the tab to fully close the vents. that is as far as i have gotten. been doing alot of reading. guess i'm just open to any suggestions to starting off. appreciate the hospitality.
