Noob from Cackalacky

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

Hey everyone -


Cackalacky is the term of affection that we North Carolinians use for our home state! But DON'T call this Wolfpacker a Tarheel or else I'll have to lay the smack down on ya!biggrin.gif


So here I am, noob to these forums and a noob to smoking in general. While clearly smoking is the superior way of cooking, I do have a fair amount of non-smoked barbecue experience, as I own a gas pig cooker. And in a pinch, I've been known to roast a boston butt in the oven with a bunch of liquid smoke.


But I am ready to renounce my sins and become a full-fledged smoker! This weekend I acquired a new Char-Griller charcoal grill and also got the side fire box that goes with it. Apparently, there are several modifications that you can make to this set up, so I look forward to gleaning those from this board.


As far as specific types of meat, I'm a really big pork guy. Once I season the grill, my first smoking attempt is going to be a quarter pig for New Year's.


Last, I goofed off at work this afternoon and surfed this board. OMG - this stuff is FOOD PORN! I was starving after surfing these boards! icon_cool.gif

Welcome to the forum.  Someone will be along to help you with the mods to your smoker.  I'm not familiar with it but there are a lot of folks here who use the same style.

Welcome fellow Cackalackian!  As you've found there is a ton of great information here and some really helpful folks.  If you haven't already do a search char griller mods and you should find a lot of information on the mods that will help you out.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!


I need to go surf the equipment forums, as I'm having a hard time knocking out the panels between the main grill and the SFB. I'm sure there's a wealth of info on this topic.


Off to soak it all in!
