Neat Forum! I have just jumped in to / invested-in the smoked meat adventure, and this looks to be a great resource.

I have tried to do a little homework to get myself set-up. The NB Hondo was about the best in my low price range so I picked one up last weekend, and made a few mods based on my internet research...added a baffle at the hole to the firebox, mounted the thermo near the grill, made a charcoal basket, & lowered the chimney to grill level. I have a Maverick ET-73 thermo on it's way in the mail and have given the Hondo it's 1st "burn" with the entire interior coated with veg oil, about 5 hours. I am hoping to try it out with a brisket this weekend, we'll see how it goes.

I have just signed up for the eCourse, so Im sure that will be a great resource.

Thanks to all of you who take the time to add posts which are sure to really help the newbies like me.

Welcome to the Smokin Meat Forum.

Here's a little help for the newbies...


Sounds like you're on the way a brisket is a bit of a challenge for a first smoke and can take more than 10 hours for a large one, but not impossible for a newbie to do with good success.
Its not rocket science and if you have the fine folks here on SMF to guide you through it. You'll do fine.
Here's a link to a brisket tutorial. http://www.smoking-meat.com/brisket-smoke.html

If it turns out wonderfully you can invite me to the tasting... hint hint....lol
