    Hello All, my name is Ken and I am from California (Los Angeles) to be exact. I am kind of new to smoking, but have smoked before with great results. I have just purchased a Brinkman Verticle smoker from Home Depot which I assume is a beginners smoker : ). Smoked my first Turkey this thanksgiving and it turn out ok though i know I need more practice to get it perfect. I am trying to expirement with different cuts of meats to see what works the best.That goes for the different woods and well. I used Apple wood to do the turkey and its was nice.Hopefully i am in a place where I can get all the great help needed to become a great smoker of meat and I welcome all the advice i can get.Please tell me how to add pics on this site so I can post a pic of my turkey. thanks :)

    Ask away, we love questions. You started with Turkey, one of the more difficult projects so you have a good idea of what you are getting into.  What's next on your smoking menu?

    Ken welcome to the forum, I post pictures by clicking the insert image button next to the roll of film button which is next to the paper clip button in the reply/post thread box. You are in the right place to advance your smoking abilities and to get tons of great input. I'm not in the city but I'm in the county, so good luck with everything!

    Welcome Ken from LA.

    I joined the site earlier this year and I have to warn you, these people will slowly infect you. Yeah, like boiling a frog slowly, you have entered a tepid pool, these caring and generous people who, through their kindness, will slowly turn up the heat until the pool is boiling. Then you're cooked! They got you! You'll find yourself by the grill or smoker with the tongs in one hand and a camera in the other thinking - I wonder if this is a good shot for my next post on Smoking Meat Forums? It's true. It happened to me.

    You've been warned! Be careful Ken.

    Not bad advise from KYDave....[​IMG]You may want to check with your local authorities about an intervention program for the new addiction that you don't know you have yet....
