Greetings all. Not only am I new to the forums, but I am also new to smoking. I had been lamenting to my wife for years how I wanted to switch back to charcoal, and low and behold, shee buys me a new grill/smoker for my birthday. I now own a Brinkman Grill King Deluxe. The only problem is that I have NEVER smoked a piece of meat in my life. Where do I begin? Also, do I really need to cure my grill before I ever use it?
