    Hey everyone just droping by to say HI and compliment everyone on a great site.  I have been smoking ribs and brisket for awhile and want to learn how to do bacon and ham and that is how I found this great site.  I have already learned a few things I have been doing wrong that I am sure will improve my meat.

    Hey Nick,

    Just wanted to say hello and welcome aboard!  You said it right when you said this is a great site. Since you have experience smoking ribs, I'd sure love some of your feedback and tips (ribs are a favorite of mine).

    So Nick, where are you from? I can't seem to place your accent.

    Thanks for the warm welcome.  I have signed up for the ecourse but havent recieved the email yet.  This site sure does make you hungry.  lol  I am from Michigan, live in TN south of Nashville about 1 hour and work in Huntsville AL.  I am waiting for the A-MAZE-N-SMOKER   cant wait for it to get here.  My wife said my buddies ribs were better than mine so I have to step it up some!

    So Nick, which A-MAZE-N-SMOKER did you buy? The 6x6 or the 6x8?

    I was looking at getting one of those too... some times I would like to grill some steaks and I figured maybe I could just put the A-maze-n-smoker under the burners and let the smoke do its thing while I grill... I know there won't be much infusion but I figure some will be better than nothing (I could be really off track on this - feel free people to show me the errors of my ways - remember I'm new to this whole thing).

    I got the 6x8 AMS, I wanted the option for longer smoke times.  I figured I could always stop the thing smoking rather than refilling it.  I did sign up for the ecourse but never got it in the mail and I checked my spam filter it wasnt there either.  I will try again later this week.

    I really think the E-Course is really worth the extra effort (at least it was in my case). Let me know how the AMS works out for you.

    Will do and I agree the ecourse is great it helped me out on a few things I didnt know and have wondered about.
