Hello from New Jersey

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello all... From Northern NJ...  I was lurking for the past month or so as I looked into getting a smoker.  I just ordered the Landmann Smoky Mountain 38" Wide-Chamber Vertical Gas Smoker with 2 Drawers (propane).  Should be arriving tomorrow via UPS.

 

I know I need to season it first, so I will be searching the forums for tips and tricks to do that.

 

I have lot's of experience grilling (the first thing I do when it snows is shovel a path to the grill), but very little smoking experience.  I have used the Weber Bullet in the past, but I found it very difficult to control the heat and got discouraged.  Tried chicken thighs (which worked well) and ribs and brisket (which didn't work).

 

Thanks and looking forward to discussions!
