    Welcome to SMF! If you need help just take the E-course it will get you started. Then start asking questions. You'll find everyone here is friendly, and there is a wealth of knowledge to be had. The only stupid question is the one you don't ask. Good luck & happy smoking.

    Welcome to the site!

    You need to take it slow and practice. Your smoker is just like a welder, you're not gonna pull one off the shelf, go home and lay down a nice bead if ya don't know how to weld. Start with something simple like some chicken or ribs and work your way up. Getting comfortable with the smoker will take a couple of trials and errors.. Read, read and ask..
