  1. I look forward to reading and receiving some great info, advice, and input on these forums.

    My name is Steve. I am soon to be 30yrs old, a father of two, a physical therapist, and a competitive brazilian jiujitsu athlete. I live in Niagara, Ontario, Canada.

    I grew up with a passion for cooking and eating. I went to culinary school but dropped out after a year but the passion I have for food has always remained. as much as I love to cook elaborate meals, my most favourite way to cook is as primal as it gets. Meat, fire, and time. Low and slow.

    I currently have a cheap, hardware store char grill offset. It has served me well (as well as a cheap offset could) fot the past 2 1/2 years. I am currently in the market for a new offset. Lookin at a few different pits and could use some advice (another reason I joined the forum).

    Look forward to getting some great advice.

    [​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!

  8. Thanks for all the warm welcome's. Seems like a super friendly community. I'm glad to be a part. Here's a pic of a bacon wrapped shoulder roast I smoked a couple weeks back. Beneath the bacon jacket was a wet rub of dijon mustard, sundried tomato, and a pureé of roasted chili peppers. Smoked between 225 & 250°f with applewood smoke.
