Hello all. This looks like a great place to hang out and smoke! I use a Charbroil side box, a couple Little Chiefs and a couple big Chiefs. Not too experienced, but no failures so far! I love making venison jerky, smoked salmon, brisket, and am having success with turkeys. Did a chicken a month or so ago that was terrific! Got a friends mom hooked on my turkey last year, so she dropped off a bird for me to smoke the other day, and it's in the smoke as I type. I have several fruit trees on my property, so I have easy access to supplies. Got the bird in some cherry right now, and apple will follow. Not sure why it works, but that combo results in a nice mellow and almost sweet smoke flavor to the bird. Anyway, just wanted to say Hello and thanks to all the contributors here. A ton of good info.
