G'Day Good People,
I must appoligise 1st if I break any rules or regulation's,then 2nd I've been reading a lot of your pages and downloading recipes BUT Ive never had the nerve to introduce myself or participate on a computer with something I would Love to do.
I am 59 yrs old and have NEVER smoke a piece of meat in my life, but after reading a lot of the pages and made the rub(not used yet) made the sauce (and LOVE it) I am on my way.

I only have my LP gas barbeque with the hood and will try smoking a chicken 1st and see how I go.

Keep up the GREAT work, Robbie

Welcome Robbie - you youngster! I will be 64 in June so you are still a kid and there are some folks even older than me HaHa

If you have a grill to use as your smoker you can make up foil packets of wood chips, put several slits in the top of the foil packets and only ignite one side of the grill. Put the chicken on the other side with no heat and put the burner on low on the lit side - put your foil packet on the edge of the heat and change them out every 30-40 minutes as they burn out.You need to keep the lid closed as much as possible to retain the smoke. This method worked for me for years. Use a thermometer to determine when done and take to 160 then crank up the other side of the grill and crisp up the skin. Almost any rub you have will work with this method

Good luck
