    New to Offset and Charcoal Smoking, Help.

    New to smoking and used an electric smoker for the last year. I just purchased a Dyna Glo vertical offset smoker.

    Charcoal vs Pellets vs Wood vs Gas vs Electric

    I own every type of cooker except the electric smoker. My first smoker was electric so I do have experience with that type also. This is my experience with all of them, keep in mind your experiences will be different. I will dive into electric smokers first. An electric smoke in my opinion is...

    Just Built A Mini WSM and I Have Never Smoked Before

    First post. Let me know if I posted this in the wrong place. My neighbor smoked some ribs for me on his Weber Kettle. I caught the bug and build a Mini WSM to get me started.
