New to smoking.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

First entry:

 

I just tried out a cheapo Brinkman charcoal smoker recently and was happy with the outcome for a first effort.  The goal is to be able to do tender pork, beef and chicken, but I also love salmon and a good turkey leg.  I did cure and smoke bacon starting with a pound of boneless ribs, which was easier than I expected.  At some point maybe I'll try my hand at sausage.  I'm already finding a wealth of good information here.

 
The only upgrade so far has been a better temp gauge and an extra grating to raise the coals slightly.  I'm using an electric receptacle box and cover to hold wood chips.  But I have an electric element on hand and a controller coming in the mail.  I figure with that I can get more constant minimum heat with less work.  I'm leaning toward having an external smoke box because I think it will be easier to tend. 

 

But one step at a time.
