  1. I'm forty-ish, live in Bakersfield and do maintenance at a prison in TAFT.

    I like sunshine, walks on the beach and eating steaming hunks of flesh torn from freshly slaughtered animals.

    Anyway, let me start by saying:

    I've never done any smoking.       ...EVER.

    That said, I've looked around the site for a few days and this looks like the place to start.

    I need to learn everything from the type of woods and smokers to the cuts of meat and recipes.

    I spent a day or two perusing the reverse flow thread for info, 'cause I've got a small rear-facing reverse-flow smoker build coming up this next week (already got the trailer and most of the steel)

    I've got a LOT to study up on before I incinerate my first few briskets.

     First off welcome Spanker Dude to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:


    then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

    here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.


    Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again

    Welcome to Your New Addiction
