Originally from upstate New York and was introduced to Texas smoked cooking in 1989 while in Austin TX for 10 years,...just LOVED IT.. moved to Raleigh in 1999. I have only done smoking in Gas grills with wood chips, low, but mostly direct heat..I just purchased a used Char Griller 1224 Pro Smoker, and I am dying to learn the art of REAL indirect heat smoking. I have a great Weber propane for my "grilling".
I found several useful articles on making modifications to the 1224 that make it even better...thank you ! I look forward to reading, learning and participating in these forums..
