  1. Hi all!

    First i must say what an excellent and informative site this has turned out to be!! i have been lurking here for a couple of days and have to admit grow more excited the more i read these posts!!

    I have been grilling for years, and do very well at it (I do live in the south after all!) now i have decided its time to put my big boy pants on and step into the world of smoking! I eat out at BBQ joints all the time and figured what the heck, may as well have a stab myself, maybe (in the very long run!) save some money, plus i can just crash on the couch after eating when extremely full and not have to worry about driving home!!

    Thank you all for the wealth of information you have imparted here, i am sure it is all going to come in extremely useful in the weeks to come!!

    Happy Smoking!!

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
