New to SMF

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Hi Guys, I just joined SMF. Been doing BBQ for about 10 years now. I just recently did a whole hog for the first time with my son...BigTrain74, it came out great. Anyway who knew a yankee from CT could BBQ.


Love doing chicken, ribs & boston butt on my GOSMS. I also have a 20lb insulated electric smoker from the Sausage Maker I use for jerky. Still working on the Brisket, having a tough time with flavor and dryness. The propane smoker isn't large enough for a full packer so I need to work on something new. I was thinking about a charbroil offset smoker / grill...any opinions?

Welcome to the forums!  Glad you've joined us.  You've found a great place to learn and share ideas on our favorite pastimes...grilling, smoking, and curing great food!  There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here who really enjoy helping one another.  Just ask any time you need help and you'll get plenty!  There are plenty of decent offset smokers that are comparable to the charbroil in price and might want to spend some time browsing the offset smoker thread for some reviews and ideas.
