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.
Welcome to the forums from another Columbus smoker!!!

Take care,

Wow!! That was quick! I just got started reading, I think I am gonna be here for awhile. I'm sure my wife and kids will enjoy the fruits of my learning.
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!

Welcome Howard. I hope you enjoy all the forum has to offer, there's lots to learn and the people here are great. Make sure to keep us all updated on your smoking adventures, we just love good smoking stories.
Hi Howard,
