    Just thought I would say hi as I am new to the forum. I have always loved eating meat and recently discovered a love of cooking. I tried some smoked meat on a trip and thought I would join a forum to find out some more about the process, and hopefully try it out myself. I welcome any hints and tips that you might be able to throw my way.

    I really appreciate the comments andI have taken all your advice and have started the ecourse. It is really interesting so far although I am missing part three. I have sent an email explaining this so hopefully I will get it soon and I can carry on with the final 3 sections.
