I am getting started in smoking meats. I just got a Char-Broil vertical gas smoker. It is nothing fancy and definately one of the cheaper brands/model of smoker. I am a little concerned that it will not perform well but it was a gift and I am looking forward to testing it out.
I live in Bloomington, IL and am a huge Illinois State Athletics fan hence the user name! Go Redbirds
I am going to try smoking a roast tomorrow and possibly some chicken breasts. Any advice is welcome. I would love to smoke for my family during get togethers and holidays, but don't want to embarrass myself!!
