  5. Just stumbled on this site the other night and am thrilled to find such nice folks doing the same type of stuff I love to do! Smokin' - yeah, lots of people doing that, but add in sausage making and homemade bacon and musical insturments, Dang! Feel like I was adopted and found my real family!!!

    Hello, newbie as well, that's actually really smart to have a "test" turkey for new recipes. Have you ever smoked your turkey before?

    These people are here to brainwash you! I swear, if you join this site, you will get so many of your questions answered that you will have no choice but to keep smoking more and more meat.

    These people have this sick obsession with pictures of smoked meats and side dishes.

    Many of them want to meet at these staged gatherings. I don't fall for it. They won't take my foil cap from me!

    Trust me, if you join this site you will find yourself here every night. Hopelessly addicted to their propoganda and imagery of this drug called Thin Blue Smoke (also known as TBS, gotta watch the acronyms they are secret codes).

    Run while you can and join a bird watching forum or something like that!

    (ok, I hope everyone can appreciate the dripping sarcasm of my post. Honestly, this place rocks out loud and is somewhere you definately want to be)[​IMG]

    This site is especially useful to turn to when you blow off your paralegal degree to get into the barbecue business, and people "just don't understand" why you'd want to be the "queen of the oinkfest"

    It's therapeutic to know that I AM NOT CRAZY if there's this many people out there just as passionate about smoking meat as I am.

    So a cult? Hmmm maybe. More like an addiction with no twelve step program I'd say.

    I joined back in June but had not been on here since which was a really stupid thing to do. I have been in here about 4 hours so far today and have emailed several of my BBQ buds to check it out. One of the best addictions I can think of.
