Just researching for now

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Hi guys,

 

I'm from Ontario, Canada.  I have no experience at all with smoking foods, but I would like to get started.  I do not own a smoker at this point but I found this forum and I am trying to absorb what information I can before deciding on which model to buy.

Sweet grill  :biggrin:    You can get your feet wet smoking some foods on it while you are researching and looking at a dedicated smoker.   Light burners on one end and put the meat on the other for some indirect action.     Use a smoke box or a AMNTS smoke generator and off you go.

I will certainly look into that provided the smoker box is cheap enough.  I dont want to spend much on it if I'm planning to buy a big smoker anyways.  I appreciate your input.

Smoke boxes are very inexpensive.   The one from Weber is stainless and costs $25 or so.   Heck, you can make wood chip/chunk pouches out of aluminum foil, poke some holes in it and use them on your Weber.    This would get you on the road to smoking while you figure out which smoker you really want.
