    Hello SMF!

    My name is Tim Ferguson and I am from Tacoma, WA (Go Hawks! Get a QB!). I have a an awesome wife of 5 years and a little 2 year old daughter. I am new to smoking meats and I am sure I'll never be the diehard that I am sure many of you are, but when I do it, I want to do it right. My wife got me a Masterbuilt electric smoker for my birthday. I have fired it up a few times and the results are fantastic so far. I've mostly done some ribs with one tri-tip.

    I look forward to learning the tricks from you guys! I have found this place to be an invaluable resource to make sure I am doing it right!

    I gotta go with Dave on this, it's a slippery slope once you get the bug.
