    Hello all, I'm Joel from SC and I love to grill. I have a Orion smoker, a Big Easy, Brinkmann Smoke n Grill, Brinkmann Smoke n Pit, Masterbuilt electric smoker, charcoal grill, 4 turkey fryers, traller with 3 gas grills on it. 3x5, 2x3, 2x3 and just bought a Well Cargo BBQ trailer. I mostly cook for charity - March of Dimes - Relay for Life - American Heart - McLeod Children's Foundation - I've just started cooking with smoke and have a lot to learn. So glad I found this forum.
    I have cooked in a local whole hog competition here for the last ten years and have placed 5th, 2nd, 4th, & 3rd 4 times. I think I need some smoke for first place. I need to find out how to add a smoke box to my grill. Thanks for the help - pooldaddy9

    Hey Joel...Welcome to SMF. Might not need a smokebox... maybe just a bit of wood off the either end of the coals. A box would allow for a true smoke for other things like butts and brisket tho, using only the heat from the coals/wood to heat the cooker.

    I have yet to do whole hog, but many here have...they'll be around soon!

    In your first post you mentioned McLeod Hospital and I used to work up there in my previous life.
