First real smoker

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 


Bought myself a real smoker, got a Char-griller offset smoker. After a few hours of seasoning I've put on a turkey to test it out. I will add a few photos as it comes alone.

Undercooked and over smoked. It was a good test run of the new smoker though, now I know it's cooking habits and will be better prepared for Sundays big cook.

Ready for Sundays big smoke. I'm doing 3 racks of ribs and a butt for my co-workers. I've got a sample of sauces and rubs to try out, a new better quality digital thermometer, meat claws, a bunch of smoking woods and a few bags of B & B lump charcoal. We will see how it turns out!!!

  Looks like you are well prepared.How did you figure oversmoked? Was it the wood or the time in smoke/? Provide some details and we may be able to help you out.

The bird had a bad smoke flavor (I prefer a light smoke anyway) from burning to much wood at a high temp is what did it I believe. My smoke was a ashy grey, lots of soot. On this next smoke I am going to use just lump charcoal with just a few hand fulls of fruit wood chips.

Thoughts on adding unlite lump charcoal to the firebox as it's going or should I always start it in the chimney and add after it's good and lite?
