    hi everyone i am new to smoking and i been grilling for couple years now and i just started smoking couple months ago and i still have lots to learn about smoking. i am 28 just got done with my military service at my ten year mark. I live in fontana CA i been living here for a short time and got into smoking i have a brinkman staggered smoker i use a lot and i love it i am interested in upgrading my smoker because my smoker right now leaks a lot of smoke and im not happy with the smoke escaping. the other day i smoked a whole new York strip that i got from Costco and also saint Louis ribs and rib eye. they all came out delicious and very juicy with a good smoke ring. i have couple of questions about setting my fire i am using charcoal and hickory logs at what time should i put my food in after the fire. thank you for your time.

    Welcome Jorge and thank you for your service. You can put the meat in there when your temperature is stable and to your liking and the smoke is Thin Blue Smoke. or what we call TBS. This is the most flavorfull smoke without leaving bitter tasting gunk on what you are cooking. Hope this helps and if you have any questions fire away. I am sure someone has that exact same smoker and can help you out. Happy smoking, timber.
