Hello Paul.  Don't yet throw the baby out with the bath water.  What smoker do you have?  Maybe we can fix it.  An offset can be a bear with a sore head to deal with but I have used one for years.  They can be sorted.  Let's talk.  What are your issues?  Keep Smokin!

Hi there


Welcome to the group


Can I make a suggestion - try this method if you have a slow cooker .... http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/163420/pulled-pork-slow-cooker-and-smoker-combo



It's easy to get disillusioned with this smoking lark when you are new to it and this way you only need to smoke for 3 hours and the pulled pork is more "forgiving" than say Ribs as even if the temp goes a little high it's not going to burn them to a frazell,,,,


Really worth a go - it's the way I do Pulled Pork and it works for me


Good luck

Hello Paul.  I hope I sent you the mods for that offset, if I haven't please let me know.  You might look at the link below.  Now I haven't ordered mine yet and it is a little pricey when you add the shipping but the members swear by it.  I have seen it working and it is a fine product.  You could add a mailbox mod to that smoker and you're off and running.  Keep Smokin!
