    Hi friends,
    RNMike here, yes I’m an RN, Pediatric Intensive Care Flight Nurse to be specific. I’m pretty new to smoking and I just got my Rec Tec RT 700 Bull. Best part is that it was a gift from my father-in-law. A TOTAL surprise! Anyway, I’m in SoCal getting all the smoke I can handle from the fires, but ready to start things up with my new toy. Please excuse any dumb questions I may ask, like I said...noob here to learn!
    P. S. That’s our pet pig Penelope, no you can’t eat her!

    Welcome, Mike

    You'll find lots of information here and there's no better group of folks willing to help and kibitz anywhere on the web. No such thing as a dumb question. That said, the search function works great and you can find conversations about almost anything you can think of.

    Glad you're in CA cuz that's a mighty nice looking pork shoulder!! Seriously though, Penelope isn't going to have nightmares or anything watching her cousins go into the cooker?

  5. Yo Mike, nice to have you here. I'm out in Riverside getting plenty of smoke too. Have fun with your new smoker and there are no dumb questions. It's all good. We have somebody that can answer any question you might have about smoking.

    Hey thanks friends! As far as Penelope goes, she doesn’t seem to mind at all. I’ve cooked numerous whole pigs in my La Caja China. If she gets pissed, she never says anything to me:), she just goes inside & climbs in her bed (yep, she’s an indoor pig). She does like a piece of bacon now & then, but who doesn’t.
