Rookie in IL

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hey! Just bought my first smoker, a GrillPro charcoal 16" dome smoker, on a whim. It was on sale for $34.99 at Menards. Put it together last night and grilled some pork chops, but haven't smoked anything yet. I have some questions regarding charcoal, wood chunks, wood chips, etc... Without knowing what I was doing, I bought lump hardwood charcoal, hickory chunks and hickory chips. What is the best combination of these to use for smoking? Thanks!



Peoria, IL

Welcome aboard!


Congrats on the new toy.  You accidently bought some pretty good stuff.

I am sure someone will be along to help you who is more familiar with that smoker.


Good luck and good smoking.
