    Hello All:

    I am am from Raleigh, NC and have grilled, smoked and barbecued for nearly 40 years.  I just completed a stainless steel drum smoker and found SmokingMeatForums.com by searching for drum smoking sites.  I look forward to reading your grilling/smoking experiences and to sharing mine with you.

    In addition to the drum smoker I have a Grill Dome Egg Style Cooker, Grill Man 3' X 4' Gas Grill and a couple of Webers.  Yes, I love to place meat over a heat source outdoors, enjoy the cooking experience and finally the joy on the faces as they eat good Q!

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "SMF User Guidelines" .....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per TulsaJeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
