lots of you new members & just registered lurkers. you have questions or answers- don't be shy. just cause yer new here doen't mean you are new to the game of smoking meats or grilling,bbqing, or cooking in general. this site is open to all ideas & input. if you are new & in the background- just say hi & ask a question. personally i was cooking & smoking 10 years before i found this place- everyone is friendly & i have learned more here than i ever knew before & still learn everyday. you don't have to be a smoking expert here. we do jokes, we post pics of our families, we meet in person & make new friends. it's all about improving our friendship & quality of life here... and we cook & eat a lot of food on top of all that. so just join in say hi in roll call & meet some new great people. thank you., gsg.
