  1. Hey everyone. Chris here from Tampa, FL. I just picked up my first smoker (a one door vertical Brinkmann), and am very excited to get smoking. I have enrolled in the 5 day ecourse, and already have learned a bunch. I know absolutly nothing about smoking, but it looks like I came to the right place! There is a crap-ton of info on here! I hope to do my first smoke in the next few days, and will be sure to let ya'll know how it goes.

    You came to the right place to learn a whole bunch. Watch out its addicting.

    It wasn't too long ago I started out, and now there is not enough time to devote to looking up reading, smoking, and eating.

    Ask any questions, experiment, take pictures (qview) and most important, have fun.

    Welcome Chris. Smoke on my friend. [​IMG]
  14. Glad to have you with us, Chris. As you've read before, this is extremely addicting. Go ahead - Smoke with reckless abandon. You're in good hands here.

    Welcome to SMF. Glad you joined us.
  16. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I haven't yet decided what my first smoke will be. I'm sure a fatty or 2 will make it on there at some point soon. It might have to wait until this weekend though as I have suddenly gotten very busy for the next couple of days (I hate it when that happens). Anyways, I'm as giddy as a schoolgirl and will definitely be posting stupid questions, and hopefully some tasty looking Qview.

    This is what I am working with. It's not much, but hopefully it will get the job done.
