     First off welcome Pakak 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
  3. Welcome to SMF pakak! If you stick around you will learn a lot about smoking meats and other edible food. Don't feel too bad about your boat, I just sold mine to help feed this smoking addiction.

    Welcome pakak! Glad to have you here! I have a boat and a canoe. I use the canoe far more than the boat and will probably sell the boat. Also have a Suburban with 300,000 plus miles. Hope gas prices go down so I can hit a half million with it.[​IMG]

    No boat here, I did have a see-doo tho but sold it since its safer to drink and smoke then it is to drink and boat.

    We are glad to have you around, more voices means more ideas and most important more pictures to look at.

    Don't be scared to ask a question if you are in need of advice.

    Everyone says there is no dumb questions!!!!

    I disagree with that one. Example Below

    Why didn't I have my fire extinguisher where I could get to it?

    My very first smoke had a grease fire that could have been a bad bad deal.

    Good Luck and have happy days smoking.
