Ok, So I've been trying to smoke meat for a couple of years now and have done some fair;y decent jobs but never gotten what I wanted.  Thanks to this site and the info here I finally got it right.  Last Pork Butt I smoked turned out just perfect!.

The learning curve on my own was rather steep!  

The learning curve after joining up here was about one pork butt!  WOOHOO!

I hear ya. My indoor and outdoor cooking skills are pretty good. I struggled with the smoking thing.

Today I am getting very happy with what I have learned here.

Not only that but I ran into Pops, a friend from 3rd grade on. Several have helped me thru

a few issues. Many thanks to Bear. My bacon is now outstanding.

In the end I have about $400 bucks in the new habit and am only lacking a stuffer.

 Well..that and a few more smokers.

 Thanks Jeff for making an awesome site!!

First off Welcome Ron 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. Now if you are really new I would recommend signing up for the E-course It's free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few good techniques too. 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.

Welcome To Your New Addiction

Welcome Ron

I would have to agree, that the learning curve is greatly reduced by the wonderful members of this forum.

Everyone is so eager to help.

Welcome Ron and I have to agree. I got lucky because I was referred to this site, from a boating and fishing forum, before I started smoking. I was able

to do a lot of research and take the E-Course (do that if you haven't already) before attempting my first smoke. So far everything has been beyond my expectations!  


Ribs and a Fattie this weekend.
