    Just wanted to drop in and say hi. I am new to the world of smoking. I am looking at purchasing a Perfect Flame LP smoker from lowes in the next couple of days. Not sure what I will try to cook first, maybe some baby back ribs? Have been checking out a lot of smoking/bbq sites to get ideas and tips. This is a great site with a ton of good info and great people who are passionate about what they do. I will try to post some pics when I get everything set up and get some cooking done.

    Welcome gutshot.

    In addition to ribs, a pork butt is a pretty good one to try for a first time. But depending on the size they can be a long time in the smoker. Also, chicken quarters or is another recommendation. They're cheap to buy (so you don't feel as bad if they get ruined) and have a short cook time and they're delicious.

    Welcome to the SMF, and may I suggest Jeff's free 5-day Ecoarse. Good reading/review for all. It will help on that learning curve. It's all good my friend.

    Welcome gutshot.
    Nice to know there are at least a small handful of Jersey folks who like BBQ.

    Wow! thanks for the welcome guys. I will try the course you mentioned. I also ordered a book
    Smoke & Spice: Cooking with Smoke, the Real Way to Barbecue, on Your Charcoal Grill, Water Smoker, or Wood-Burning Pit
    Got it used on amazon.com for around $8.
