New to SMF

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Hello Everyone. I have been secretly reading this forum for quite some time and now coming out of the closet- I am a glorified smoking king (at least around these parts)

I've read the ecourse, modified my char griller, bought the rub & sauce recipe, upgraded the wothless stock temp gauge and been smoking ever since (a lot of venison, fatties, ribs, chicken even thinking of throwing my beagle "BJ" on the grill...

I have owned a SFB many years ago, recently I finally have settled down again-traveled through the USA on job assignments- and now have purchased a Char Griller Pro. I've read and looked at many smokers and decided on this one. Here's her maiden voyage (after the intitial break in) of Smoked German Venison Suasage. I am my worst critic and tell ya- this is some good sausage.
I will post my now fully modified Griller later on - I am at work...

My question is this, when may I have have the honor to become a member of the most respected OTBS????

Welcome fellow CGP'r I see that you have the grate inverted in the cooking chamber PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif . I can't tell by the picture but, did you lower the stack to grate level??
If not buy some aluminium smoke stack material, roll it up and stick it in through the bottom of the stack, adjust it to about 2 inchs of the cooking grate, It will increase your flu draft, and help even out temps. You will loss a lttle cooking space but you can always adjust it up or down as needed.

Hi, No Contest:

Welcome to the tribe. I'm a member of several Q forums, but this is probably the friendliest and has the broadest scope.

BTW...if you haven't yet posted the recipe for those German Venison Sausages, please do. Deer season is upon us--and those babies look awesome.
