New Guy from Iowa

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to post a big thanks to everyone, especially those of you that have posted about the Char-Griller mods. I have been grilling for years, but just picking up the real barbq. Smoked some sausage the other night, and tommorow I am smoking a pork loin, beer butt chicken, and some more sausage. The mods that have been posted and referenced have been hugely helpful.

BTW: Char-Griller Pro with Side Fire Box

Pretty funny how welcoming everyone is. I can't wait to post some pics of the first "real smoke". I am doing a dry run right now to test my mods and see how it holds.

I have done the flex dryer tube, aluminum foil everything, flip the charcoil bed, and the smoker box insert to give a grate over the pull out tray.

I love how helpful everyone is, and I can't wait until I know enough to make suggestions.

BTW, my dad is a cabinent maker, and therefore has wood left over all the time. I just made a hickory kitchen and use leftover wood to smoke with. Any problems vs using wet wood?

Doc, most of us use dry or seasoned wood. Some folks will soak there chips. In my opinion, ya just gotta dry em out again before there gonna start smokin. The one thin yall wanna watch about processed wood is that it hasn't been treated with some sort of chemical. Ifin ya know it is shall we say clean, yall got a great source fer wood. Cherry is a nice smokin wood as well. Apple be another one usually available ta us.
