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!

What kind of rig did you buy? With most smokers, a few mods can have even cheap rigs putting out great que. Chances are, whatever you bought, someone here has the same smoker and can give you tips on modifying and using it.

Good luck!

I bought a cheap Grillpro traditional smoker.

Most of my smokers were pretty inexpensive, but I spent time figuring out the quirks and destroyed a few fatties, but after a few you learn how to work around the cheap.
