    Hello from Phoenix, AZ.  I Moved from Baltimore, MD after the my 6 year Army tour to Phoenix, AZ in 1970. Just recently retired after 44 years in the telecommunications industry and now have more time on my hands to explore smoking meats and working on my bucket list.  For the last 15 years I have  been grilling and smoking on charcoal grills using the indirect and off set methods.  Just bought a 2 door Master Built Gas Smoker and I have been checking out this site and have learned some good tips. Already bought  Jeff's Smoking Meat Book and 5 day smoking PDF.  I’m finding that trying to get the box temperature below 250 degrees is difficult when the outside temperature is 100 and the box temp is 126 before you give it gas. This is the life in Phoenix in the summer but come winter it will be great smoking weather. I’m looking forward to the ideas and tips from my fellow smokers.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors! 

    You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it has great information to use no matter your skill level!

    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!
