Hi, I'm Steve from the Indianapolis, Indiana area. I'm originally from Southern Indiana, where fried chicken, German fries, cole slaw and schooner beer reigns supreme! The "fun" gift for my tenth anniversary present from my wife was a GOSM and I just put it together this week. I love to grill but have never smoked anything, thus, as we always said in the USMC about new Marines, I'm a "boot" to it
. I found this site, found the forum, and was amazed by the willingness of the members to help. I really look forward to smoking, the growing pains, asking questions, and just interacting. Thanks for having me!
Hello Steve, and welcome to the SMF. You will meet a lot of great folks here who are happy to help you with any questions/problems that you may have. ENJOY!
Welcome Jasper95! You have just embarked on an endless journey to great Q! It's a wunnerful thing...
Welcome aboard Boot! There are a lot of Old Corps smokers here! I was new to it a couple of years ago...I think I've only used my grill may 2 or 3 times since we started smoking. It's addicting. There's a wealth of knowledge here and many GOSM users. Get that thing fired up! And Semper Fi by the way...are you an ND fan?
Thanks for the welcome to all. I graduated from Indiana University, so sorry, not a ND fan. However, I don't root against them....does that count????
Welcome Steve -

This is the place to learn about Q! You won't find a better group of folks to help you anywhere! Enjoy!
welcome to SMF. I am originally from indiana also. This place will take the growing pains out of learning the fine art of smoking. You will love your GOSM.
Hey Steve and welcome to SMF,looking forward to seeing your posts, don't forget pics of your creations ,we all love the pics ,see ya in the forums.
Welcome aboard!

From the NW "Region" myself and a Boilermaker at that!

If you only learn or try one thing from this site I would have to reccomend that it be "Atomic Buffalo Turds"! Not real filling as a snack goes, but them is the tastiest things that I have ever had! Been making a batch every week or so here lately. (the ole lady thinks I am nuts, and who would know better?) Doing a butt this weekend, so I am off to start on the rub!

Again, welcom and see Ya around!
