My name is Cam, I live in Denver, Colorado. I have never smoked anything but have always wanted to get into it. Yesterday, i bought my first smoker, used, on craigslist. I probably should have read reviews about the different smokers before purchasing one but that's alright, i'm a fast learner. I purchased a two door, vertical, brinkmann smoker. The previous owner gave me a quick run down and told me about his modified charcoal box. I will be attempting to smoke for the first time tomorrow. I plan on smoking some chicken leg quarters to start with. Any advice so i don't ruin dinner??
