I am Gus, a retired cabinetmaker/furniture designer, who now has all the time in the world (ah. well, limited by fate of course!) to do what I love the most.....cook for family and friends in the sure knowledge that I know bugger all. Food has been a lifelong passion, and now, having discovered  forums like this one, seemingly a very friendly bunch of guys and ladies, always ready to swap stories, experiences, knowledge and the odd bite, I feel at home. Hoping to be a contributor as well as a taker, I am looking forward to being part of the group.

The equipment I use apart from, as it can be imagined,  a state of the art kitchen (built by myself of course!).....Cookshack smoker - Kitchen Aid mixer - 7 L sausage stuffer - NOAW 8" slicer - Kenwood 2000w grinder - Ply smoker w/ smoke daddy & hotplate combination - all fingers intact - brain less so........

Regards to all,

Gus

Gus, welcome to the best smoking meat forum you will ever find!  You will find a great bunch of people here and we are always willing to help in any way we can.  Can I suggest a few things? 1) Take advantage of the FREE SMOKING MEAT E-COURSE that is offered by web master Jeff. I had been smoking meat for about 6 years before I got it and I really learned a lot from it, even some things I had never though about. 

2) You will find a treasure trove of information here and you can type in any subject in the SEARCH BAR near the top of the page this will bring up all the threads concerning that subject, it's a really great tool we have.  3) The WIKI SECTION at the top of the page is also a great tool for finding information, I would recommend that you go to the WIKI SECTION and under the letter A choose the topic Acronyms, this will give you many of the abbreviations and acronyms that we use here, make a copy of it and keep it near the computer and maybe you won't think we are too crazy when we post.  Last but not least, the only dumb question that you can ask here.....is the one you do not ask, were here to help you so please give us the opportunity.  Again Gus, welcome to the Smoking Meat Forum, we are glad to have you!

Your SMF Friend,

Barry
