Hey Jeff, welcome to SMF. There are a lot of very friendly & knowledgeable folks here to help you. I urge you to sign up for the free E-course. It will give you the basics. Then start asking questions. Good luck & glad to have you aboard.
First off welcome Jeff to SMF.You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:
Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again
Thanks to everyone for the great welcome. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences with all of you and most of all learning how to grill and smoke great pieces of meat. I am going to take your advice and take the e-course, sounds like a good start. I went and bought my spices today for my rub and will probably go with the 3-2-1 method on Sunday and hope for the best.
