Hello SMF folks! I found this site through some members of another site I belong to. In the past, I've found some great info and pointers in these forums and I thought it was time to join up. My current setup is a Char-Griller Akorn Kamado that my wife got me for our anniversary. Prior to that I have smoked meats on vertical smokers, homemade setups, cheapo Wal Mart specials, Webers, you name it! BBQ has become more than a hobby for me and I am trying to turn my passion into a money making business, sites like this have taught me a lot over the years and I feel confident in my cooking abilities enough to try and make a living with it.WIth that said, I am looking at moving to an affordable commercial grade cooker to get me going and all the other stuff associated with starting up a BBQ shack, when you don't have anything to waste it is a real benefit to have a great resource at your disposal like these forums. I look forward to participating in threads with you all, learning from those who have been perfecting the art of BBQ and Smoking, and sharing my experiences with others!

Hello Mr Cue and welcome to the fun.  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  We look forward to your contributions.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!
