Hello from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by fatboy327, Oct 2, 2009.

  1. Hello everyone, my handle is fatboy327, i'm a 41 year old police officer from Oshawa, Ontario, Canada. Im new to true BBq, and I have to admit it is my latest obsession. SMF has been an incredible source of insight, information and entertainment. Currently I own a cheap offset Charbroiler smoker which I picked up new off Kijijji for $100. It has its limitations but most of all everything is coming out surprisingly well (turkey, roast beef, sides and backs need a little more work but getting better). A new larger better built offset is already a topic in my house. The info. I have received off of this site has definitely sped up my learning curve but I still have lots to learn. My other hobbies include harleys, hotrods, nascar and hockey, but currently this one is getting the most attention. Thanks everyone for keeping a great site going...

    Greetings 'FatBoy', and Welcome to the 'community'.

    Enjoy your stay at
    Settle in and have fun.
    Any questions, plenty of experts... and make yourself at home.

    I created a 32x32 Desktop icon for SMF members if they want it. Just download it, UNzip it to anywhere (but remember where)... then if you have a current icon you are using just right-click/ 'properties'/change icon/ and go look for where you unzipped it and click it. Then name the icon what ever you want... obviously I named mine Smoking Meat Forums
    If you don't have a desktop icon you can easily create one using this icon if you want.
    It is transparent so your background should just show threw!!
  6. Welcome!!!

    I spent a little time in Kitchner for work a few years ago.

We really like to have newbies here because they can bring in a new propective to how things are done. There's nothing like a new set of eyes to give and new way to make things that little differant to make things alittle better. So I hope you know about the Qview here.
    Here's a link to photobucket it's free and easy to download pictures. Then if your really new to smoking Look up the E-course.
