    Hello all,

    I've seen a lot of forums in my life, and this is the first one I've ever joined.  Looks like a great community, and look forward to sharing my experiences and being a part of it.  I dream of one day opening up a food truck making smoked meat sandwiches with the pork I raise on my farm. 

    Kind regards,

  2. Welcome to SMF. This is a great site & I'm sure you'll love it. I too have a dream of having a food truck with smoked goodies, but as far as I know, Vancouver is the only Canadian city that allows it. What a shame. Good news for you tough. Enjoy your stay here & don't forget the QVIEW.

    Welcome aboard.  Here in California, most cities have prohibitions against food trucks.  The restaurant owners don't like competition from folks with low overhead.  Just outside the cities, in the county, though, they are often legal. But this is Taxifornia where almost nothing is legal.  LOL

    Good luck and good smoking.
  11. LoL, Taxifornia. Sounds like Quebec. If it's cool, you can't have it.

    Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.

    This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.

    Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.

    We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
    this is the place. 

    Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

    Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  

    Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.

    Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa
