  1. Hey guys gals!!
    I am excited to start smoking. I just got a $200 electric smoker, and I am itching to use it. Temp range is 100-275. The nice thing is I have about 200 fruit trees that I prune each fall and spring. So guess what?! Now I can make good use of of clippings. I have a rather small smoker, it's only 2.1 cf. but that's all I need till I figure out what I am doing. Lol
    Anyways I plan to do a turkey this year for thanksgiving. So anyone with advice, bring it on!!! I plan to do about a 12-13 pound bird. So I got to practice up some before the big day. Anyone that has suggestions for a beginner? What is the easiest thing to start out doing? Wanted to smoke some hard cheese but from what i have found my smoker gets to hot. :-(
    I have never smoked before.

    Welcome. You'll love this forum. I just started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. I have learned so much from the kind members. They are generous with answers to your questions and there are a ton of great ideas in the postings. One of the ways I learned the most was posting my projects with pictures and I always got support, advice and suggestions for differing ways to do things.

    So, in answer to your question, if you want to try a project, I suggest you use the search bar at the top and read some of the threads. .Post any questions you have. When you start the project, post pictures and your process as you go along and you will get great advice while you are doing it.

    I am sure you will love this forum as much as I do.
