Hello Wolfgang, and welcome! This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc. There are plenty of friendly, knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another. Looking forward to your input here, and just ask when you need anything...someone here will surely have the answer.
Hello and Welcome to our addiction. A word of warning: There is no 12 step program for this one! Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share. If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice. All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have. Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there. We look forward to your contributions. GREAT looking smoker! I have had sausage shipped here from your region of Germany. I really like it. Maybe you can help me with a good sausage recipe. If you have a good recipe, I may just become your new best friend.
I am from Texas but now live in England. If I can help with anything feel free to send me a PM. If I don't know the answer I'll bet I know someone who does; we can learn together. Have fun. Good luck. Keep Smokin!
