Welcome. Lots of good information on this board. Check out the pork, poultry and beef sections for how-tos. Check out the sauces and side dishes sections for recipes. Check out the wook, propane and electric sections for info on types of smokers.
Thank you so much. I intend to learn alot. It wasnt but about a year ago that I joined a pizza making forum. One year later, I have a neighborhood of friends that love my pizza. Talk about making a neighborhood a family. This year I want to hone my bbq skills and get'em coming over for some lip-smacking bbq.
Seriously, cooking is a surefire way to make a neighborhood a fantastic place to live. I am sure after this next year, I will have the sho-nuff equipment to host some great BBQ's. But I must take toddler steps with a simple eletric smoker and learn slowly. As Abe Lincoln once stated, "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." That being said, bear with me while I sharpen my axe.
Welcome to the SMF Iceman. Be sure to check out Jeffs 5 day e-course. It's a great place to start. I myself use a Char-Griller with side firebox. You should be able to get plenty of info on electrics in the Smoking Supplies and Equipment section.
