Hey guys.  Great site and I am already learning a ton after only a short visit.  Long story short I am a meat fanatic that loves to grill.  The only natural progression for me was to go to bbqing. So here I am.  Looks like I am going to be picking up a new lang in the next couple of weeks and I cant wait to start cooking.  I will post my progress as I start q'uing.  Thanks for the great site.

Welcome! You're going to love it here as these people are great. I am from PA originally, like Les, anxious to hear where you're from. Upstate is my guess from your name.

 Coalminer from PA here! NE PA... Wilkesbarre-scranton Area.... newbee to the forum Also.....

Fired up the Propane Smoker this past weekend ,,,,,, it was about 15* mid morningsunday, ending with a -4*degrees this monday  morning.

I know you hardcore charcoal smokers hate electric and propane, but its masterbuilt, propane with mods, and it held the temp at 200- 225 very well for 12 hours. I was very suprised, because of its thin walled no insulated construction, held its temp very well.....go fiqure.

 First off welcome Buck 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 Bucktailer!

This is the first I saw this thread.

My family had a cabin on State Game Land for about 50 years (1947 to almost 2000) at Saw Creek, off 402 (Whitaker Road).

I know Pike County better than the county I live in now (Lehigh), but not as good as Bucks (where my heart is).

I used to catch native Brookies off the little 402 bridge, just north of the churches at Lord's Valley.

Again---Welcome neighbor,

Bear

I am running a masterbuilt, propane smoker, with wood stove rope, gasket that I drilled and inserted, the door was leaking heat and smoke for sure! But cured the issue. All steam, smoke, and heat venting through top stack! Also I placed a porcelain shallow pot with lump charcoal, and wood for smoke, the propane helps with cold temps, wind, and keeps a even temp at 220* avg. Crazy as it sounds!

Bucktailer, welcome to SMF, looks like the guys have mentioned about everything that I tell people when they are new, mballi has put it down pretty good and given you some important links to go to.  The only thing I would say is to use the Search Bar, (near the top of the page) and the WIKI sections to find out about anything you want to read about, there is literally tons of material here to read about. One other thing that helped me, in the WIKI section under the letter A, there is a list of Acronyms, print off a copy of these and keep it close to your computer.  It will help you understand what we are talking about sometimes.  Again, glad to have you and Welcome from Southwest Virginia, mining capitol of Virginia!

Your SMF Friend,

Barry
