  1. Hey all, name's Jason, joined SMF a bit ago and never properly introduced myself.  Living in Mass now but originally from PA.  My brother turned me on to this site a bit back.

    I've been smoking for aobut a year now, I recieved a ECB for Christmas last year (2009) and kind of just jumped in and followed intuition.  I am an avid cooking nerd and decided to try something new.  No complaints so far!

    Now, a year in, I got tired of fighing the cold with charcoal so I went out and got a deal on an analog 30" MES (paid $129 brand new).  I have to say it was quite a step up from the ECB.  So far I've done brisket, shoulder, ribs, and jerkey among other things and I can't really complain.  My wife, friends, and coworkers don't either! 

    Back to me, like I said I'm a huge cooking nerd!  I'm always dabbling in something new, from fresh pasta to stuffing sausage.  I'm an engineer by education which, I believe, leads me to my hobby.  I veiw everything I do in the kitchen (or backyard [​IMG]) as a science experiment.  If I may, I have to say with quite a bit of success! 

    I'm hoping that there's a lot I can learn from other's experiences and I hope there's even more that can be learned from my experiences!  I like to give more than I take!

    Anyway, that's about me.  I'm looking forward to interacting with all of you in the future!

    As always, thanks in advance!

    Very respectfully,
