    hi gang...newly registered member here. ive been smoking for about 2 months now, pretty much at every given opportunity. ive successfully made pork ribs (babyback and spare), pork shoulder, beef ribs, and chicken thighs. not so successfully: beef brisket and my first 'shoulder' (crooked butcher gave me a brick of loin). needless to say, i am completely addicted to the dark art of low and slow cookin.

    ive been working off my chargriller smokin pro, burning mainly wicked good weekend warrior lump for direct grilling and briquettes for the sidebox. ive also tried using apple and hickory as smoking wood (excellent all-around woods in my opinion) and i have some pecan and cherry being shipped as we speak.

    im looking forward to participating in this community, learning and sharing the lessons ive accrued thus far!

  10. [​IMG] Hello there Newbie, If you need smoke and only have small pieces or pellets, you can wrap them in Aluim. foil with a couple holes and place right on the fire.
