Eager to smoke

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

My name is Aaron. I'm 18, and will be using a standard charcoal grill to start with. Seeing as how I have yet to actually try smoking, I will wait on getting the actual smoker. I'm looking forward to learning all about smoking and giving it a shot. Thanks.

This is a great place to start. I would take Jeff's free 5 day course, there's a link on the left.
Lots of great people and advice here.

There are plenty of grill skills that translate to the smoking pit, so keep working at it.

Have you started shopping for a smoker yet?

I am a good cook on the grill but when I got my smoker, I was a little over my head. I asked alot of ? and worked hard and tried somethings. Ask a question and these folks will help you out. I will look around a differnet thread to find info like the Chuck Roast I smoked last weekend. Jeff's class is very helpful too. There is nothing better then a good long smoke.

Welcome to smf! Go to craigslist and search "bbq smoker" there are always a few around to look at and some have awesome prices too. FREE!!! If you have a weber 22" grill there is a link around here somewhere for a smoke box attachments that turns your weber into a smoker. a great place to start and makes the grill a "multitasker" hehehe thanks AB! look forward to seeing you around here more.
