Rene, welcome on to the SMF, where everyone is happy to help out, knowing that they may need help also. Be sure and sign-up for Jeff'a 5 day e course, it'll get things a little more clear and in focus.
Rene, Welcome to SMF. If you don't yet have a smoker, fear not for you are not without an alternative. There is a way to smoke meat on a weber kettle, in fact, I've done some of my best smokes on a weber kettle. If you're interested, ask me how.
Thanks for the great welcome. My first smoke experience went quite well for the most part. I had some difficulty controlling the air intake so the ribs cooked a little hotter than they should have therefore cooked a little faster. Nevertheless they did come out tasting great and were tender. The whole family loved them. Now I am hooked and I am in the marker for a smoker.
