    The search bar at the top can be your best friend when you are trying to find answers to your questions but you can still ask too if you want!

    We have an ”Articles” section that is full of great information about smoking to include a lot of recipes and instructionals. Check it out there is a lot to learn in there!

    Would you do us a favor and add your location to your profile, it helps others to know where you are when they offer advice, Thanks!

    We have some very talented sausage makers here who love to help people learn. Just not too long ago I knew nothing about making sausage and now I have a smokehouse and have done a couple of runs and think I'm doing pretty good and I learned it all right here! Go look around our "Sausage" forum and then start asking questions, but be careful it gets very addictive! I just cubed 20 lbs of pork butts that I will grind and stuff tomorrow and am already thinking about when I can do more!

    There is a lot of great people doing sausage on this site. You will find a lot of information in the forums and there is a specific sausage forum.

    I only started smoking and making sausage last fall and the members here have been of great help.

    I look forward to seeing posts from you.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    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!

  7. Thanks for all the tips! I can see that you guys have a ton of experience at this stuff.Just bought the Master Forge Digital Electric Smoker model #20071214. It appears to be a rebranded Masterbuilt Gen 2 30". I just put it together and will cure it tomorrow. Can't wait to smoke some ribs and chicken!!Jeff.

    One thing you need to know about us is that we like to see pictures of your creations and your gear.  We call it Q-View and its basically the [​IMG]!!!

  9. I would love to Qview my stuff... is there someplace I can learn to do this? I cannot even change my avatar here, I click the link and it just kickes me back. Perhaps I don't yet have permission?? but then why put the link?
