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. Look at the top of the page on the site home page. You will see a drop down menu called Forums. Follow that and you will find a forum for smokehouse builds. Post your questions in that forum and folks will bombard you with suggestions. We look forward to your contributions. Have fun. Good luck. Keep Smokin!
