Just wanted to say hi, my name is Ben and I am new at smoking. I have a Char-griller and I have smoked a few things on it but I am still learning. Some have turned out good others not so good.
Hello Ben, welcome to the SMF. Lots of friendly folks here that can steer you in the right direction. Checkout Jeff's 5 day ecourse, good basic reading.

WELCOME Ben, glad you found us!

I think IOWA may have taken the lead here lately
Welcome aboard SMF! We will share in your sucesses and not-so-sucesses alike. We're here for ya and willlook forward to the Q view (lots of pics, yes we love them) !

No welcome would be complete ... yes ... without an official welcome from the Great White North ... yes... that's right ... Canada!
Great folks here with no reason to live except to share their triumphs and failures for the betterment of mankind (& yes womankind too!)
Congrats on finding one of the most helpful forums on the web.

The people on this site can offer you tons of advice/suggestions and support no matter where they are from.

Being a resourceful Iowan helps also.......

As smokebuzz said there does seem to be alot of us signing on recently. Would be a pretty good sized crowd if we got together for a "Q" session.
