First smoker

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello, I bought my first smoker several weeks ago (ECB), wife got two hens & I fired up the smoker & dried them bird out. icon_sad.gif we were still able to eat them. Had trouble with ash smothering fire down. (Time to do mod's) I signed up for this forum 4/12/09 and today is the first time I am able to post. Looking forward to reading asking questions. I live just outside Atlanta, Ga. been married for 32 yrs. I'm a mechanic for major truck line. So here we go, ready set smoke.

Welcome aboard Bill. I guess ya found the Charcoal Smoker Forum section for your mods. Don't let one bird get ya down, their not the same as pork or beef. Keep plugging away.

Don't give up, after a couple of bad experiments with a ucb I took a 15 year break until I found an offset and tried again, now I am hooked. Back then I didnt know of anywhere to get advice like you can here.

Welcome Bill! Hens are older and tougher than fryers and roasters so they need to cook longer to get tender and this dries then out. Happy smoking and have a good time.PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif
