    Welcome to SMF, Eric. I would suggest that you take Jeff's free 5 day course to get you started. Take some time and read the threads and ask questions. There are many people here who love to share their knowledge.

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to see younger folks getting interested in smoking meat. When the forum is back up and running properly, it's much easier to navigate. Hang around and read the posts, ask questions and before you know it, you'll be smoking like a pro.

    does anybody have a good walk through tutorial on how to cook ribs (beef or pork)?
  13. Welcome to our little corner of the web! Congrats on the "well priced smoker", nothin' beat FREE!
    I Wish I could help with the E-course info, I had it saved in PDF form but my hard drive crashed a while back and I lost about 2 Gb worth of BBQ recipes and saved posts[​IMG] ! I'm sure if you ask around on here, someone will have have it, or you could PM Jeff or one of the Moderators directly and they could get you a copy, no problem! If all else fails, just surf this form, you'll find so much "how-to" info, people will think you've been 'Queing since you were in diapers[​IMG] !

    Howdy dewberry. Glad to welcome you into the world of smoking. When doing your ribs, if you have a little extra room, you could always throw on a fattie or two.

    Welcome to the family Eric, another Texan here.

    Looks like you have been given lots of good info so far, if it's not enough just be sure and ask.

    Remember the only stupid question is the one you didn't ask.

    I agree with Bassman, sure is nice to see the younger generation taking interest in our addiction.

    Welcome aboard Eric. You'll be smoking food like a pro in no time. Just read up on different techniques that people use. It even helps to look at old posts, not just the newer ones.

    What part of TX do you live? I'm in the RGV.
