hello from the burbs of chicago! vertern griller,rookie smoker

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hi,

   I am new to this site and have been reading and researching a lot as I am really feeling the need to smoke meat! I have been working my way around a grill since 7th grade.

 

I have been a charcoal user for many years but have been using a gas grill for the last 5yrs.Over the last few years I have been on a kick of making my own marinades and sauces/glazes. so I need some new challenges like making my own rubs and moping sauces:). i will start with some good commercial products until I mater the meat, then make my own.

 

 

I am undecided if I want a charcoal or gas smoker. I looking around and borrowed a few smokers. an electric brinkman about 10yrs old and a camping type.

 

I plan on tinkering with them before buying or making one. I don't have the skills to make one but I have a friend that does sheet metal work :) so I probably will over design one this winter.

 

 

I look forward to reading this site and learning a lot.
