Newbie to the smoking scene. I have been grilling for years on my weber 3 burner and have always wanted to get into smoking. My in - laws bought me a Brinkman Vertical Charcoal smoker. I am looking forward to curing it hopefully this weekend and start out with an easy meat.
Anyone have any good ideas for a newbie on any other accessories to have, any upgrades needed to my smoker, basic meat (one i cant screw up) to get started. I was thinking of doing ribs and a whole chicken on my first run.
Thanks and look forward to ideas on the site.
