    I joined about 2 or 3 weeks ago, but I haven't been able to do Roll Call--just wouldn't let me. So. Now I can.I live in Drayton Valley, Alberta (that's Canada, for anybody that missed it). I'm an oil patch truck driver--I haul gravel out to the sites.I'm married (Linda) and have 2 black labs (4 years old). We live on 10 acres of bush land, surrounded by 1000 acres of bush land.My experience with smoking is limited |(that's a nice way of saying that I don't know jack sh*t). I have a cheapo Walmart smoker that I bought off my niece for $75. This fall I will upgrade to a WSM, and my world will be good. I would put some pictures on line, but once again, it won't let me. Really starting to tick me off. I can't even upload qview

    Welcome aboard, Gary!  This is the best place I know for sharing ideas on smoking, grilling, curing, etc.  So many friendly and knowledgeable folks who really enjoy helping one another.  Just holler when you need anything, and someone here will have the answer.

    Sorry you're having troubles with loading photos...It could be the site's software putting a temporary hold on your pics.  It does that with new users...its a bit of a pain, but only temporary.  Just a precaution to prevent Spam, and after you've made a few posts, it'll stop.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! I started with a cheapo smoker just to make sure I was going to like Smoking foods.  Oh heck yes...totally addicted now!  

    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!
