  1. Hi. I'm new to smoking and want to learn as much as I can.  I live in the High Desert area of southern California. I have a Cajun Injector Electric Smoker that I received as a gift. I have already smoked some salmon in it and it came out great. I have some gas grill experience but I have just started smoking. Hoping to make new friends and learn about meat smoking here.

    Welcome. You'll love this forum. I just started smoking last fall and had limited success until I found this forum. I have learned so much from the kind members. They are generous with answers to your questions and there are a ton of great ideas in the postings. One of the ways I learned the most was posting my projects with pictures and I always got support, advice and suggestions for differing ways to do things.

     

    I am sure you will love this forum as much as I do.

    [​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!
