  1. Hi guys and gals

    My name is Sean and I'm from southern ontario. Since childhood I was always raised to think that the grill was god. Last weekend I got my first taste of smoked meat (smoked veal steaks to be specific) and OH MY GOD!

    I just ordered my first smoker, a Vermont Castings "Great outdoors smoker" which should be arriving next week. It looks like a nice cheap propane smoker that will hopefully suit my lack of smoking knowledge, giving me something easy to learn on and hone my skills.

    I'm looking forward to smoking my first piece of meat, and getting some great tips and recipes from this great site.

    You just had something smoked? You poor guy. We're here to save you from your miserable existence.
    What a great piece of meat to have for your first though.
  5. Welcome Sean! Up in Smoke is right though.. Your tastes will change once you start to make your own smoked stuff :). Good luck and everyone is right on when they suggest Jeff's 5-day smoking meat e-course. Enjoy your smoke! Daun

    welcome --show your flag if you like,

    is that a stainless steel vermont castings smoker???
    how wide is it????

    i looked at them --and they were not chear--

    let the good times and thin blue smoke roll :!: :!: :!: 8)
  11. Thanks for the warm welcome,
    Larry I just got home to find the box in my kitchen, it's not the chrome model, it's black (I actually prefer the look of the black) and it's 16 inches wide. For the price it looks like a great smoker. I went to bass pro shops and the prices were out of this world. I'm going to pick up some chips tomorrow and experiment with a few different flavors and meats.
