  1. Hello all,

                First post, but actually joined the site a few months ago.  Started smokin this summer and so far not too bad.  I bought a small and cheap smoker to start out with(char broil American) from wal-mart. Soon realized that I would soon need to step up to a little better model, but works for the time being.

                Anyway the reason for this post is that I just completed a few minor mods to the smoker.(extend stack closer to grates, small deflector plate by firebox) Which was not an easy task given the 20 degree temps.Would like to thank everyone for posting helpful tips and info..    GO PACKERS......

    [​IMG]  to SMF. There is a huge wealth of knowledge here, and folks are eager to help any way they can.

    I suggest you take the 5 day e-course on smoking http://www.smoking-meat.com/smoking-basics-ecourse.html

    Even if you are not new to smoking it's a great read.
