I am new to smoking and have purchased a charcoal smoker for my boyfriend for Christmas. We went to a party where his buddy smoked a bunch of meat for the guests and I could tell it was something my boyfriend would like to have. Since we are brand new to this, I did not go out and buy the shiny Weber his friend has, but instead opted on a Brinkmann that had decent reviews on Amazon. My question is: what supplies should I pick up to give him along with the charcoal smoker on Christmas Day? I asked on Amazon, but the only answer I got said wood chips. Do I need the charcoal? (seems kind of obvious that I do!) How about a charcoal chimney? We have BBQ tools. Some other Amazon reader suggested a flexible funnel to refill water too. What else do I need to know before we get started?
