    Hey everyone. I'm new here. Just bought my first house in northern Nevada, so I finally have a backyard in which to grill and BBQ. I know a decent amount about BBQ, smoking, and cooking in general and have some pretty tasty recipes (BBQ and not).

    I don't currently have a "set-up". All of my prior work has been done with a Weber Lil'smokey travel grill and some random $5 thing I got at a garage sale. Since the results were pretty not bad, I'm excited to see what I can do this summer when I get some real equipment.

    I'm leaning toward getting something from Char-broil, though I've heard that recent models have been using thinner metal and are generally of lower quality. To begin with, I'm probably going to get a grill/smoker combo and keep it unmodified, until I can get another one and have a dedicated grill and smoker (I'd hate to mod up the one thing I have and not be able to grill a steak!).

    Welcome to SMF!! Glad to have you here.

    I would recomend a silver smoker or something from Char-grill. The smoking pro is a nice beginner set-up.
     
  4. Welcome! I have to agree with the silver smoker. Mine has served me well over the last five years. and I have smoked quite a bit on it. Have fun

    Actually, the silver smoker is the one I specifically heard was being made with thinner/cheaper metal now. I read consumer reviews on several retailer sites, and that was the #1 complaint. It could be one or two people 'review bombing' the product, but I just don't know.
