    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! 

    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!

    Always happy to see sw Michigan . I'm in Mattawan / Paw Paw area . You can spend hours on this forum . I turned the meat man at the grocery store on to this place and I saw him a couple days later and he said he spent 4 hours on here . A lot of great info . So many times if I google some recipe or anything about smoking , a forum topic or post is one of the first results . I think this forum is the best one . Good luck with your new smoker.
  7. thanks jsdspif!! always nice to see another Michigander around haha. im from st joe Stevensville area so not far from you. I cant tell you how many hours I have spent on this site just reading, and searching for things. this is by far the best smoking site on the web!!
