     Hello Folks!

    I have always loved to eat.......will pretty much try anything. I have been lurking in some forums about BBQ and/or smoking meat and always wondered about it. As a child Dad had the old charcoal grill and as we became more modern, I now have a honkin big gas BBQ that I use all year round.

    However, several things happened to peak my interest. I ended up buying both a quarter of local grass fed beef and a quarter of local pork. Now what to do ? At about the same time my local supermarket  brought in a few pallets of a Kingsford 23' barrel smoker. Hmmmm. I was watching them all summer and then last week they dropped the price to 24.95 and put all the charcoal on sale 60 percent off. I just couldnt pass it up....it was meant to be :)

    So.......now what do I do? Any easy recipes to try out on the machine so I can ease into it? Any advise from the seasoned veterans in here...pardon the pun!

    Looking forward to lots of researching and experimenting.

    [​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!

    Hello fellow Canadian!

    I live on the other side of the country in the Rockies of BC. You live in the only province/territory of Canada I haven't been to. I do intend to change that.

    I only started smoking last fall and have been helped a lot by the experienced members of this site. Of my earliest successes, a pulled pork butt was a major success for me once I found this forum and realized it had to be cooked to 205F regardless of how long it takes. I also had an early success with spareribs cooked with the 3-2-1 recipe. Just do a search for whatever cut of meat you want to try and there will be a ton of great information.

    If I could make a suggestion, I posted pictures and descriptions of what I was smoking as I went along with my first couple of smokes and got great advice from the members as I did the smoke.

    I hope you get as much out of the forums as I have.

    Just hike up the Newfy pants and try something simple.  First succeed simply and go from there.  Start with a rump roast of something simple and relatively small, just in case it does not work.

    Just go for it.
