  1. Just found the site this morning while looking for a recipe for pepper bacon- what a great site! I've been smoking for a few years, still working to improve my craft. Much like new member SmokySooner I use a Weber 22.5" for both grilling and smoking. I just cold smoked my first bacon slab, it turned out great and now the missus is demanding more. She also wants me to take some local BBQ classes that cost $300 and more- I think I just might find all that I need here at SMF and put that class money towards buying more meat!

    Welcome, and I'd use the money on meat, the only way to get better is with practice

    Welcome to SMF. Take that $300 that you were gonna spend on classes and buy BBQ toys.

    Welcome to the SMF. I think you've got the right plan by reading the different forums as a learning tool. And spending the money on Q material, now that's a good plan too. It's all good my friend.
