Name is John, live about 10 miles from NotreDame,thus the Smokin Irish handle.

Never smoked before (meat) bought a MES30 and amn

Well I built a stand for it,did reasearch on fourm,got all my spices,But been sick this week,struggled thru work and

thursday received  amns,with dust.

 IDIOT ME, under the weather and not thinking good,I seen that bag of Apple dust,boy I bet that smells good!

Opened the bag just as I took a wiff I shook the bag a little...OMG MORON ...that dust went up my nose,thought I was gonna die! Well it made me forget about my sore throat...

Cant wait to SMOKE !
Welcome to smf gald to have ya!!! Check out the search feature and the wiki sections for tons of great info. Also see about the free 5 day e-course to start ya out too!!! Good luck.
The apple dust will help the sore throat for sure. Dont you remember the saying the apple a day keeps the doctor away?

You are going to love the AMNS big time. I just cooked a fattie with some apple and some pecan this morning
Welcome to SMF !

 Oh and by the way ,The Apple dust smells a whole lot better when it's smoking.
I guess Todd needs to put a disclaimer on his dust. "Not for snorting, may be hazardous to your health."
Welcome to the SMF. Glad to have you here. Lots of good folks, great recipes and knowledge. Looking forward to your first qview.
Irish, glad to have you here at SMF, I must strongly agree with Les3176, do exactly what he said and remember this, the only dumb question that you can ask here is the one that you do not ask!  Again, glad to have you and may all your smokes be great!
