    My name is Ben and I'm in the Navy, stationed at Fort Gordon over near Augusta, GA. I planning on picking up a smoker this weekend or coming week and I look forward churning out some awesome food. Probably gonna start out with a chicken, some ribs, and a butt. I have a passion for Cajun cooking so I'll probably try to blend that into my smokes. Originally I'm from Florida and we have some pretty good BBQ down there but since I've come up here to GA I constantly go across the border to SC for their BBQ, it's pretty awesome with lots of mustard and vinegar flavors so I'll definitely try and work with that too. Thanks for letting me join y'alls community, I'm about to start diving into the forums so I can learn as much as i can before I start my first smoke.

    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!

    I'm going tomorrow to pick up a Masterbuilt propane smoker, probably gonna try out some ribs and a butt using a bourbon sauce I found on the forums here and my own special cajun rub. We'll see how it goes. Thanks so much to you all, I've already learned a whole lot from this forum that should help my first smoke be successful (hopefully!).
