Noob from San Antonio

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

I've been a griller forever and the family and I have been pretty happy with the results so far. I've been interested lately in upping my game with smoking and understand it's quite a different bear. The wife surprised me with the CG Smokin pro w/ SFB for my b-day and I'm here trying to soak up any information, tips and tricks before my first smoke. I guess my main concern is getting the temp to stay consistant throughtout the smoke.

Any little tidbit would be most appriciated!

Welcome fellow Texan. It all comes with practice. The sfb takes more attention but play with it a little and you will find its groove.

How to post Qview to Forum:

When you uploading to Photobucket I always use the Large IMG setting, 640 x 480 it is a nice size...

Everyone here enjoys seeing the Qview so be sure to post plenty of pics...

Large ones that us old people with bad eyes can see.
