Hi folks! I've been lurking for a couple of weeks and finally decided to join the fray. A little about me-- I'm an Atlanta, GA native who moved up to Washington State about 6 years ago, and one thing among many that I miss from down home is the scarcity of good Q.
I know my way around a grill when it comes to burgers, dogs, and the occasional grilled chicken or steak, but smoking is a new animal I'm looking to tame. I've been doing some reading and studying and made my first purchase last night. Budget limitations, plus the desire to start on the cheaper side to learn the art, led me to the Char-Broil American Gourmet model 10201595. It's basically the Char-Broiller SnP's kid brother. It's small enough to fit my limited porch space, and until I develop a reputation, it's only going to be feeding 2 people at a time. I'm planning on adapting some of the SnP mods I've seen here, so with that in mind, would it be safe to say this is a decent entry-level unit?
Thanks in advance, and I look forward to learning from and sharing with you fine folks as I get into this hobby!
