My dad always cooked with gas grills. I am now getting my first house (dont want to spend alot) and I know I will have a gas grill but I want to know more. I hear so much about smoking meats but there is no one to teach me. What are the different kinds of smokers? I know there is Gas/charcoal/electric but what is the difference what do I want? i thought you were supposed to burn wood. How do you change the temp? ex. raise the temp lower the temp I feel bad being the new guy here but can anyone give me a step by step play or anything it would be much appreciated.
