    Hello everyone.  I'm Jason, and I'm new to smoking.  I just got a smoker the other day (early Christmas present) and although I haven't tried it yet, thanks to this site, I've already figured out what I am going to make first! 

    A little bit about me, I am a VERY busy person.  I hope I have time to use my new smoker.  I am an avid hunter and fisherman.  I have 2 daughters, one that loves to hunt, and one that is starting to show some interest.  I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT for 2 different departments.  I work full time, and travel throughout the state of Illinois working on fire equipment.  I am a Medic in the Illinois Army National Guard.  I attend college part time to be an HVAC-R technician.  I am also a board member of our local Isaac Walton Leauge chapter.  Like I said, I'm a little busy, but I always find time for new hobbies such as this!
  2. Welcome to SMF. I am a huge bears fans, the best thing about BBQ is cookin low and slow so please rush it. aaAnd good luck on the new smoker

    Welcome aboard, Jason!

    An old saying was that if you want a job done right and on time, assign it to a busy man.

    Good luck and good smoking

    This Sunday I'm going to smoke a couple of the suffed fatties.  I plan to put them in on the way to my deer stand, and have my mom keep an eye on them while I sit for a couple hours to try to get my daughter her first buck, then we can come home to a great breakfast.  Does anyone have any good suggestions on what to stuff them with?

    Hi Jason, glad to have you with us.

    You can put most anything you like in the fatties,

    for breakfast you might use scrambled eggs, cheese, etc.
