Hello,

I am still new to the smokin' hobby and have lots of questions!  My name is Will and I live in Southern California.  My wife bought me a Char-Broil American Gourmet Deluxe about a month ago and I love it so far!  I'm doing more and more research and finding out different modifications that can be done to my smoker to increase it's efficiency.  Look forward to chatting with everyone!

-Will

 First off welcome Will to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:

http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/list/127

then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.

 http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/82034/how-to-post-qview-to-smf

Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again

Welcome to Your New Addiction

Welcome! So.Cal's kind of a big place, whereabouts are you? We lived in Buena Park and La Habra/Whittier for about 6 years. You've got lots of good company down there! Have fun!

Cheers!
