Hello folks,
My name is Greg, and I live in NW Iowa. I just purchased a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker today, along with some Bradley bisquettes and a Bradley cookbook.
I've never smoked anything before, so I'm here to learn. You all have a wonderful site here.
I have a beautiful wife, two wonderful kids (ages 1 and 2), and a six month old black lab. My main interest is duck hunting, but I also enjoy pheasant hunting, mushroom hunting, and playing with my muzzleloader.
Again, I'm impressed with the site. I'm looking forward to meeting new friends here.
Welcome aboard. As another newbie, I can tell you there is enough experience and knowledge on this site that if you try to take it all in at once, your head could explode.
I learn something new everyday here.
Welcome GJW. You will find alot of information on smoking (food) here. Everyone here is nice and helpful. They all have helped me a great deal. IMHO this is the way to cook meat. Nothing tastes better.
Welcome to SMF!!!

Take the 5 Day's free but priceless in what it will teach you.

You might just become an expert on smoking Duck when you learn the ropes on this wonderful world of smoking.
Welcome Greg -

You've come to the right place to learn the wonderful and adictive art of smoking food. We have a lot of masterbuilt smokers here that can give you 1st hand advice. If you have any question fel frre to post them!
welcome to smf. i agree, the 5-day course is excellent. i also recommend spending the money and buy jeff's rub and sauce recipes. i just made them today (for the first time) and must say they are the bomb.
Welcome to the SMF!
Welcome to the forum. I hope you will become a regular here. You will find the folks very friendly and willing to share with you. Have fun.

Again...Welcome aboard...
