    Hello everybody ,
    I live in Elko nv I work as a mechanic at a local gold mine,I really love to cook ! I enjoy making a meal friends and family say "man that was really good " there are time is been dude that really blows lets go get a pizza ! Ha ha
    I have been always fascinated with the whole smoking process , I have several smokers ,recently I got a Bradley digital smoker which I really like . I have smoked some chickens that were really good but I've yet to figure out how to do the tri tip and briscut .
    I have been searching the web looking at forums and gathering all the information I can so as to improve my abilities .
    The couple I have checked out are not very friendly or they act like its top secret , I just want to learn that's all ! I was checking this one and everyone seems to be super friendly and willing to help a fellow smoke head out ! I am super excited to get back into it , I hurt my back and am waiting for a surgery on 9/24/12 . It's been hard to try and smoke when I barely scraping by but when I go back to work it's fire up the smokers BABY !!!!!!
    I am looking forward to learning all I can and possibly help with anything I can , I am really excited I can wait till I can move with out pain and have some money so I can start smoking again !

    Welcome , Tony. The back thingy sucks , I hope you do OK with it ; and YES we are friendly. I agree with you on the "other" forums. several are very stuck-up and tend to look down thier noses at the BYC(back yard chef) , but having roamed around some myself , I find the knowledge on this forum is actually better than on other  sites...and no fluff.[​IMG].

    We do pride ourselves in friendliness and help to our fellow members.  Don't be shy , jump in and offer your opinions . Also , send us some Q-view (Pics) of your stuff and the goodies you create.

    Have fun and...

    Glad to hear your on the mend! Did you ever consider smoking by giving directions to a family member? A 2-3 hour cheese smoke maybe? Start someone young out on a life long smoking addiction? Just a thought lol!
