  1. Really just getting into smoked meats. Love to cook, love to eat, and love some good BBQ. Every time I go some place to get some Q I often leave thinking "it was good, but I think i could do a little better" Well, i have decided to learn how. When researching smokers and things i came across this site and decided this would be were I would get a large amount of help during my new adventure. Look forward to receiving good advice and maybe one day being able to give some back.

  8. Well, I had done a little research and decided to go for the GOSM smoker from Wal-Mart for just $100. Then I decided 16 inches wasn't real wide so I opted for the wide body. Wide body runs about $140. After reading on a little more I found the Big Block. I figure that will last me. i am not going to spend money on the smaller one, only to want to move up to the larger one in the future. So, i have called my local Home Depot and ordered the Big Block.

    welcome ashton,like the others have said you have found THE place that will teach u a thing or 3 about smokin meat.-You made a good choice of moveing up in size on your first smoker-bigger is better.Heck most of us have more than 1-for that very same reason.(but don't get me wrong more is better)After getting it home u want to use mild soap & water to get the mfg. oils out of it-wipe the insides down with pam or evoo and put a fire to it-we call that seasoning it-after the burn off add some smoke and break it in.read some threads on seasoning a smoker or do a search up top of the page.Were glad you stumbled on us and we all love q-view!
