    Good afternoon fellow meat/culinary enthusiasts.

    A few quick facts:

    Hometown: Hillsboro, IL
    Currently Reside: Chicago, IL (15 years)
    Preferred method of Cooking: "Smoke em' if ya got em'". and/or "If you can't beat em', Smoke em'"
    Smoker: Smoke Hollow LP model 30164G (2012 xmas present from the wife and my first smoker)
    My Smoking Best: Pork shoulder low and slow
    Smoking Disaster: Beef Jerky followed by fish (I forgot to rinse the brine off before smoking. Way too salty

    Why I joined SMF:

    I've cherry picked ideas, advice and recipes from this forum on many occasions. From temperature probe placement to dry rub recipes, SMF has been a reliable "go to" regarding anything meat. After reading a post today from a fellow Chicagoan, and because I'm currently smoking 10lbs of pork shoulder for our New Years party, I felt that joining would be a good move.

    Im a personable guy and a straight shooter so if anyone has questions regarding my smoker, culinary experience, or personal life, ask away.

    I look forward to learning from and sharing ideas with you all.

    Only 11 more hours to go. Wish me luck. It is cold as hell out today.

    Best Regards!
