Hello All...I'm a relative newbie to smoking. I received my first smoker (a square Brinkmann vertical) for Father's Day this year and have been experimenting on my family with different meats and different woods. The favorites, so far, are alder-smoked salmon and hickory-smoked pork shoulder. I look forward to being able to pick the brains of the more experienced smokers on this forum, so I can improve my craft.

First off Welcome Eric to SMF. You'll like it here for there are a lot of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking. Now there are a lot of proven recipes for some amazing things here too. So if you need sign up for the E-Course it's free and it will give you the basics of smoking and some good methods to use also. So the next big thing for you to do is go out and get you something to smoke and if you happen to have any questions just post it here and we will be happy to answer them for you.

Thank you, Mark! Addiction is right on the money! I am always on the Smoking-Meat.com page on FB. I only smoke every other weekend because of when my youngest son comes over, but that's when I ask Jann what meat she would like me to smoke and which wood she would like me to use. This weekend it's a turkey breast (preferrably a whole one, if I can find it) using hickory charcoal and hickory chips. I will post pictures (if I remember to) and will let you know how it turns out.

Thanks, chefrob. Glad to be here. I got a good deal on fresh whole turkey breast and some turkey drumsticks at Sprouts. Going to brine them overnight. Will try to take some before and after pics and will let everyone know how they come out.
