If you haven't done so already, we invite you to post an initial message in the Roll Call forum and just tell us a little about yourself, what country, state/province you live in, what kind of smoker you use (or what you plan to use), whatever you feel comfortable sharing. This gives the other members a chance to welcome you and to get to know you a bit.

Please see our tutorial on how to post a new thread to the forum HERE

You will find that we have the friendliest, most well-informed forum anywhere around and we love to prove that.

I do have to warn you that we have a very tight spam filter and it is very common to have your posts heavily moderated when you first become a member, especially if you attach pictures. This can be frustrating but it is necessary to make sure that we keep out the "bad apples". If you submit a post but don't' see it right away, don't panic. This just means that it has been caught and is in the moderation queue. One of our staff members will be along shortly to release it from holding.
