    My name is Jim. I have been a barbeque grill user - both gas and charcoal - for many years but have only just recently become seriously interested in smoking meats. I have a Weber gas grill and a Weber kettle charcoal grill. I am testing the waters with the kettle and avoiding the gas grill for smoking. I purchased an assortment of kiln dried wood from Wood King.

    My first attempt at smoking was about 7 on a 10 scale - smoked chicken quarters. The results were good but I anticipate a lot of growth as I learn from all of you here in this forum. It is great to have a resource like this.

    Best regards to all,
    JTD

    Jim - glad to have ya aboard SMF. I was also strictly used to grilling meats and veggies before receiving a charcoal water smoker (ecb) for a Christmas gift, and have been using that thing almost every weekend!! Have learned everything I know about smoking meats, to this site.

    May I suggest signing up for the free 5-day eCourse offered by the Mod and Admin of this site, Jeff. It's all the foundational stuff needed to get your smokes off the ground. Throw those questions ya got out there, and we'll all be happy to help!

    Welcome! [​IMG]
