  1. Born and raised in Scotland but married a mid-west farmer's daughter 12 years ago and have lived in New York, Dallas and Indianapolis since coming to the States. I have a Weber natural gas grill for everyday use and anything I want to "git er done" quickly. I have the Charbroiler Silver Smoker for serious grillin' as the weber doesn't cut it for smoking a brisket 18 hours or a turkey for 14 hours. Since I've only had the Charbroiler for a month I'm trying to set it up right and learn how to control the smoke and temperature. All suggestions will be appreciated.

    I think I'm ok at high and fast grilling but I have everything to learn about low and slow.

    Howdy and welcome the SMF. Your biggest transition from grilling will be patience but once you taste the results you'll be hooked. Can you smoke Haggis?

    First, welcome to the SMF! We're glad you're here. Practice is everything but you need a good foundation from which to practice. There are several modifications that you need to make to the Charbroil. Those include a baffle from the fire box into the smoking pit, some tuning plates in the smoking pit and also an extension of the chimney down to the smoking grids. I can't remember the link but those are spelled out in detail on this forum. Also, a raised charcoal basket will be of great help with long smokes ... like butts or especially brisket. Perhaps someone can post the link or otherwise use the "search" feature. I'd strongly urge you to do the mods before going forward. I've been there and done that.
