Was told about this site from a fellow smoker, what a find. Reside in Kaufman County, I use a 22 1/2 Weber Smokey Mountain and a 26 3/4 Weber Kettle.  Plan on buying a 18 1/2  weber kettle for cooking  pizza, etc. Look forward to being involved with the forum

to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

If you didn't read the "SMF User Guidelines" .....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per TulsaJeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!

Welcome from Canada. I have only been smoking for a year so another experienced smoker to learn from is appreciated. I look forward to your posts.

One thing you need to know about us is that we like to see pictures of your creations and your gear.  We call it Q-View and its basically the

So, don't just talk about your food, show it!  Otherwise you may get a gentle reminder, like this...
