    Sorry I didn't sign in on the official Roll call forum sooner (OOPS), but I have posted on some of the other forums on this site already.  I already joined the Hoosier (IN) forum.

    I bought a MES 30" Digital about 10 days ago, and was a rank Newbie.  My secretary started extolling the virtues of smoking meats and I got intrigued.  I lurked here for awhile and then pulled the trigger on the MES.   I also invested in a AMNPS and a Polder meat thermometer.   Oh yes, and got Jeff's book also!  [​IMG]

    Since then,  I have smoked a chicken with the  Slaughterhouse Brine and just today, the wife and I did a cold smoke of Cheddar, Muenster, Monterrey Jack, and Mozarella.  The 2-3 week wait will be a killer before trying it. [​IMG]

    Thanks to all for the great posts and advice on smoking, this site is a great wealth of smoken' knowledge!  [​IMG]

    I have also constructed a cold smoker attachment using an aluminum water bottle/air pump/alum. elbow (Thanks to Bud Lite!).  I used it today on the cold smoked cheese.

    I am greatly impressed with the ingenuity of the members on this site.  Thanks again!

    Got my venison marinading in the fridge for tomorrow's smoke! [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, will have to postpone the venison smokin' til Sunday.  Bad weather Sat. afternoon [​IMG].  I may have to look into figuring out a method for ventilation for my garage for smokin'!

    The weather forecasters missed the turnip truck again and we smoked on the patio.
