Hello all. Just built my first smoker. Have been cooking for a long time and just starting to get serious about smoking. I hope the learn and contribute.

Welcome Claude, and first let me thank you for your service. I do love saying that. 

Nice to meet ya. Great folks here. If we can't smoke, we'll settle upon talking about smoking. The search engine is amazing, its packed full of useful info and the Q-View tutorials are unbelievable. If you have a question, research or start a thread with your question, or check the forum it would fall under, and if all else fails ask a guru. That is those with either a moderator or OTBS tag by their name.

My biggest suggestion is that you get some type of designated storage, a journal, a notebook, a flash drive, something..... and keep records of what you do. Be dang embarrassing to do something really exceptional and then when ready to do it again you can't remember that splash of spiced rum you put on it in jest. Here is some logs to help you accumulate your thoughts.


Hope it helps.

No stress while smoking, its like the 11th amendment to the constitution.

Always remember to relax and enjoy the smoke.
Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, just keeps getting better and better. There is lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on just about anything.
