New from East TN

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Good afternoon - I'm a new member and have enjoyed what I've read and learned so far. I'm a long time griller with about a year's experience at smoking. I have the Char Griller basic model, Wrangler which I've had for years and purchased the Duo about six months ago. Several times this winter I stood in ankle deep snow on the deck while the smoker was fire up.

I started my smoking with shoulders and ribs with the fire on one side of the grill with pretty good results. After reading a lot of stuff at the SM site and SMF, I've ordered the fire box. It seems I'll not only get better results with a more constant temp, but can increase my cooking capacity with more grill space.

This past weekend I experimented with a couple of chickens using Jeff's method and the results were outstanding. Juiciest chicken to come off my grill ever! I'm a believer.

We live in Lenoir City, TN which is just outside of Knoxville. We're from Alabama and are big time Crimson Tide fans. We have season tickets and go to most of the games every year.

You have gone and done it now! Stumbled into a whole nest of grazed smokers. Next thing you know you will be getting funny looks from your family while you snap pics of the excellent Q you just smoked.

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.
