    I was here eons ago, but I finally decided I really wanted to start smoking, so here I am.

    I just bought a Charbroil vertical gas smoker, mostly because I thought it would be easiest to maintain the temp I want. I am a little intimidated by offset smokers that only use wood and charcoal.

    I think I will get my feet wet with a couple chickens and maybe some sweet potatoes today. If I don't fail miserably, I will post results. [​IMG]

    I went ahead and bought the 5 Day Course last night. I am not the most patient person, and 5 days seems like an eternity when I want to do something now.

    Is there a thread somewhere with a list of commonly used acronyms?

    Oh, I live near Springfield, Mo., with my husband and 4 kids aged 18 to 3. I am a manager at a convenience store. I love to bake and cook, so smoking is the next step for me.

    Howdy, Trish!

    My smilies seem to have disappeared or I'd be using the Welcome one to greet you.

    You've found the right place.  I don't know of a list of SMF acronyms and abbreviations.  If you have a list, post 'em and we'll get right on it.

    Again, welcome to the smoke.

    Welcome from Canada, Trish.

    If you click on the home button on the top and go to the home page, half way down is a large link to SMF Acronyms.

    I think you will like this forum. I have only been smoking for over a year and I have learned a lot here.

    [​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 "Terms of Service" notes.....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!
