Hi everyone! I joined SMF back on December. Did the roll call back then, but feel I should reintroduce myself. I have referred back to this site many times. Kinda like a stalker! And so incredibly impressed with the entire site! So much valuable information, I have spent hours just looking around. So now I'm here and ready to be an active member to learn, and be a "smoking sponge." Late last fall, I was blessed with a GOSM! Much more of a smoker, than a newbie should have (I think)! I have taken the e-mail course. And found it most informative. Although my success rate is less than impressive. I refuse to give up! I am in St. Louis, lots of heat and humidity, I am thinking is a factor in smoking? I know my way around a grill, and quite good at it! Yes, I am tooting my own horn, much easier than patting myself on the back! I am accessing this site through my android phone, and not sure how to open a new thread. Because I have a question that might not be appropriate for this particular forum.
