New guy in Iowa!

  1. Hey everyone! My name is Randy. I am pretty new to smoking. I have been watching this site for awhile now and finally decided to join. I have MES that I bought this spring and I love it. For the time I have it works great with my schedule. I am hoping to learn a lot from you guys, so some day I can muster up the courage to get large wood fired smoker. I first got the smoking bug in of all places but Iraq. Sounds kind of crazy but, we built a makshift grill/smoker and got chickens and lamb from a local farmer. From then on I have been hooked. Take care.

    First off welcome to SMF there Randy. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
