This is orenglin. I am new to this whole smoking meat thing, but have always wanted to try it.
I recently purchased a Charbroil offset charcoal grill and smoker. I bought it primarily for a grill to replace my old propane grill, because it was cheap, and I wanted to be able to also try some smoking. I initially purchased it as a temporary grill, until I could find the grill I really wanted. I think, I might be done shopping. I am really enjoying this grill/smoker and cooking with charcoal.
I haven't made any modifications yet. I need to extend down the smoke stack to the grilling surface, and I really need to make a charcoal basket for the fire box. I seem to be going through a lot of charcoal way to fast, but I AM learning how to maintain temp. That is exciting.
I have watched and am watching a lot videos and how to modifications for the smoker and how to do various types of meat.
I recently smoked some pork chops and they turned out amazing. Sorry no pics, the meat didn't last long enough. The family devoured them before I could snap a picture. I am planning to smoke a venison roast, some pork roasts, and chickens soon, and eventually larger cuts of meat.
I am already looking for parts to construct a UDS. I have recently seen some really cool videos, and can't wait to begin.
I am looking forward to learning lots tips and tricks for all of you, and sharing my success and challenges.
