    Welcome aboard!
    We are from Iowa, but are going to CHicago in a few weeks for my bday.
    Lots of good stuff here, things you won't find anywhere else. Remember when you want to ask "how long do I cook it?" the answer will probably be "not time, but internal temp." If you haven't got one yet, there is a nice digital thermometer at Wal Mart for about$15.00. I see a lot of questions in that catagory.

    Welcome to SMF, don't be shy about asking questions, we love to answer them. The friendly folks on here will have you smoking up some awesome Q in no time at all. Someone already mentioned a good thermometer and that temperature not time is the way to go. All good advice. Keep your smoke thin and blue not white and billowing and you will be fine. [​IMG]

  9. Hi Chainsaw,
    Chicago is a great town....have a happy birthday and stay away from Lower Wacker Drive.....
    So I bought an ECB with the temp thing in the hood. So here's my first stupid question...leave the temp thing in the hood and get a digital thermometer? Is this correct? I would think so. Just askin' to clarify.

    First off welcome to SMF there. You'll like this place cause there are alot of good people here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking. Next if you haven't tried the E-course I would highly recommend it. It's free and very informative and it will give you the basics of smoking. the next thing you do is go grab something to smoke and if you have any questions just post them here and we will help you out licky spilt. Then grab your camera and snao some pictures (Qview here) and let us see what your smoking and what your smoking on too. So go get something to smoke.
