Just thought I'd go ahead and introduce myself. Name's Howard and I love to cook anything. I just got started with smoking, so anything anyone wants to pass on to me, I'm willin' to listen. I would really like to get into some competitions, even if I just have to help someone.

Welcome to Smoking Meat Forums, Howard! You've come to the right place for smoking, there is a lot of info for you to read on and some fine folks that will help answer those questions that you can't an answer for. Since your new to the art of smoking, I suggest that you check out tulsajeff's "Smoking Basics eCourse", this is an excellent primer to get you started off right.

We have some members here that compete and hopefully they'll be able to give you some tips.

Hi Howard!

Welcome to our little corner of the net! It's always nice to meet a fellow buckeye who enjoys "the art." Feel free to ask any questions, folks here are real friendly and helpful, I guarantee you'll get an answer...probably several. Heck, if your anything like me ( and most folks around here) once you get bit by the smokin' bug, you'll be aiming to smoke just about anything that doesn't run fast enough!

Cheers,
Brian

Hey Jake,


Glad to hear from ya!! I hink I got one up on ya, I work out of the house. Not so bad, my "morning commute" is down 2 sets of stairs and to the computer. Plus, I get to set my own hours. Now if only I could get this whole Q thing down like I have the work situation, I'd be ok. Thanks for the welcome!!
