    Hi I am new to smoking and found this forum on the net so I thought I would check it out. I have a small barrel type smoker I got late last year, It’s spring and I’m ready to start it back up. I know there are a lot of differences between smoking and grilling, but right now I don’t know what they are. For instance what temperature should I have for a pork roast, how long is slow & low, and how do I keep wood blocks smoking and not catching on fire. In other words I know zilch right now, so I’m ready to start smoking 101.

    Looking forward to reading and cooking up something good, thank you all for your time and for sharing your expertise _/) Glen53
