    Hey all,

         I was at Costco in Overland Park, KS last Saturday and was scoping out their briskets when another guy comes up and made a comment about them, and that touched off about a 20 minute conversation of trading smoking tips and chewing the fat.  As we finished up he said, "Do you ever go the the smoking meat forums?" and I had never heard of them, but here I am and it feels like home [​IMG]  .      

         Some of the acronyms I see are new to me so if there is a post that briefly defines some of the more commonly used ones that would be helpful but I'm figuring some of em' out as I go. 

         I am fairly new to the smoking game.  Last year I purchased my first smoker =30 inch MES (<-- HA see?) and since then I've been gung-ho.

    Welcome to the SMF, a friendly place to be. If you click on Wiki, then click on Browse All Wikis, finally click on Acronyms. That should give you a heads-up on some of the lingo used here. It's all good my friend.

    First off welcome Old Hickory to SMF. You'll like it here cause there are alot of really good folks that would just love to help you with anything to do with smoking. Now we like having new folks here to give a new prospective on some of the ways we do things around here. Now if you are really new then I would suggest that you sign up fir the 5-day E-course it free and it will give you the basics on smoking and a few recipes too. Here's a link to it:

    then you will have a method to your newly found madness and believe me it will be a madness. Then when you start smoking things you will have to learn how to post the pictures / Qview 

    here. So here's a link to a tutorial on how to post your Qview so we can see what your doing.

    Now the next thing you have to do is run out and get something to smoke. Then just smoke it and if you have any questions just post  them here and we will answer all your questions that you might have. Oh yea there's no stupid questions we were all there in the beginning and we just really like to help others enjoy the fabulous smoked foods that we do. So again


    Welcome to Your New Addiction
