Wisconsin rookie

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

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......

I suggest you spend some time reading all the different forums and the WIKIs.

Ask questions and use the handy dandy search tool for specific interests!!

Take the awesome free E-Course!!!

Have a great day!!!

      Make bacon the easy way!!

First off welcome to SMF. You'll really like this place for there are a bunch of really good folks here that would just love to help you with just about anything to do with smoking meat. Then if you have any questions you just post them here or yu can try in chat for a faster answer. If you are really new to all of this I would recommend that you look up and take the e-course. It is free and it will also give you the basics on smoking. So with all that said now go and get something to smoke.

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