New to site and smoking

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hi, my name is Trevor and I live in northern Mass. Just bought a Brinkman charcoal smoker, because I love cooking with charcoal and wanted to try using the smoker sometime, too. Never smoked anything before, but I've ben grilling for 13-15 years, as well as deep frying. Looking forward to getting into smoking foods.

Welcome Trevor. Glad you made the leap into the realm of smoking. Just remember, low and slow, beer and patience.
Happy smoking.

Well, from my years of cooking with charcoal, I have the beer and patience part down. After looking in the useful acronym section for noob's, I realize that mine probably qualifies as an ECB, hopefully this won't have too negative of an impact on my smoking capabilities until I have enough experience under my belt (and $ in my wallet) to upgrade to something better. Oh, and thanks for the welcome.

I don't see a specific model or anything, it just says Brinkman smoke & grill charcoal smoker, based on the price, it is probably the definition of ECB. Like I said before, hopefully it won't affect performance too much until I can afford a new one (I got this model because my father-in-law loves charcoal grilling and this gave me both options). Thanks for your help already!

Ok, so I grabbed the box from the corner for recycling, it's a Brinkmann model #810-3038-S, I'll try and post a pic up tomorrow, but it looks similar to the Brinkmann 805-2101-S listed in the "smoking meat store" link section. I'm planning on trying to smoke a pork shoulder/butt (haven't decided, depends on what I can get at my local meat market). Any suggestions on use for a first-timer? Any help is greatly appreciated, and I will try to post up some pics of my "first time."
