    My name is Scrappnadds......... I live in Southern Illinois (just south of St. Louis) I've been a BBQer for 30+ years and now it's time to learn the art of smoking (much to the shagrine of my wife)...

    I have been looking to buy a smoker but I have not found one yet (cabela's, Bass Pro ect.) that I did not say to myself "I could build one better" or  that's made like crap. So my adventure begins and I started here at SMF. I have a thousand Idea's but for right now I'm looking for the perfect chamber/box to put them into to make my electric smoker.........

    First off welcome to SMF there Scrabby. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.
