Doing my first smoke tomorrow. Been doing tons of reading, and found this board. Tons of great ideas, mods I can do. Both excited and nervous that I'm gonna screw something up. Picked up a Char Griller Duo with Side Firebox at Lowes (on sale for $249) and put it together myself at home. Seasoned it per the instructions, and last night, burned some porterhouse steaks over the gas portion, and grill worked great. I live in Moore, Oklahoma, and as I mentioned, I'm new to smoking (been grilling for quite a few years though), so I'm looking forward to using this board for information, tips, and gathering know-how on how to smoke everything I can. So any newbie tips for a true first-time smoker, using my CG Duo with a brisket, and maybe the meaning of life?
