New to smoking


Joined Nov 22, 2013
From Nebraska. Purchased a Bradley electric smoker last Saturday and excited to learn how to smoke.

Already have a 15# turkey thawing in the refrigerator and am heading to the store to pick up some fish and possibly some pork.

I'm probably in a bit over my head but what they heck, you only live once. I'm discovering that to do all of this seems to take a lot of dedication and time. Hope I can stick with it all. Seems to be an awful lot to learn.
