Just bought my smoker today. I love to grill and I'm anxious to get started I've never attempted to smoke until today.. 1st dish didn't go too well. Too hot for too long is what I learned. (Thanks jarjarchef!) but I enjoy cooking and challenging myself to prepare new dishes. Picked up a 40" electric smoker. Planning on trying to smoke a turkey in a cpl days so I'll be trying quite a few smaller dishes to get used to the smoker. Live in SC Glad I found this board so I can learn from all of you who have been doing this awhile.
