  1. My name is Joe Clark I just joined the forum yesterday. I am a master of eating smoked and BBQ meat but don't know jack about preparing it. I found this site while researching a smoker.

    I haven't decided on a smoker yet!

    I live in Sherwood, AR and have been a computer programmer for last 20 years. My main hobbies are hunting and fishing.

    I look forward to learning from all you experts, I get hungry just reading some of these posts!

    Welcome to SMF, Joe! You have certainly come to the right place. I've only been a member for a few weeks but I am already turning out better stuff from my smoker. Don't be shy about asking questions. Folks here are ready and willing to help you out anyway they can. Glad to have you with us.

    Hey Joe, whaddia know? Or, more importantly, what are you ABOUT to! :{) Hang on Bud... the learning curve here is a cliff! ZOOM! Look into the fatty to start...easy and almost foolproof. Maybe a pork butt next. Get a good thermometer at the same time as the smoker...it's required gear. Ask away... we love it.

    Welcome Joe. It's always good to see another Arkie on here. I was kind of passing through Sherwood a couple of weeks ago. Was doing some things in Cabot but broke for lunch at Friday's at Lakewood Village.

    Hey Joe, welcome. [​IMG] The knowledge in this forum will amaze you. Ask virtually any question, and someone here can answer it! For instance, I now know how to pickle eggs and gizzards, and Lord are they good! (of course, most of that is due to me being so naturally talented) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I need to welcome you to SMF and also extend a welcome to another Comp Sci guy. Spent my entire working career in the field and then the Comp Sci, Agency and Consulting field after that.

    Really nice to have you on board. You will love it and learn a lot. I know I have.
