Hello everyone!
I have watched all the food network bbq challenges and smoking competitions and have been wanting to give it a shot for some time now.

I will be making my first smoker purchase and have decided (after many reviews, opinions, and comparisons) that I will be picking up the Char-Griller Smokin' Pro. I'm thinking that the price is right for a newbie. I can't wait to get smoking/q'ing. Any and all advice is welcomed and needed. Hope to become a contributing member here at SMF.


Welcome to SMF! Check out the mods suggested for the CG in the Charcoal section of the forum. Enjoy it!! Post lots of pics, we love our Q-View.

Take care, have fun, and do good!


Thanks for the info and welcomes...I did sign up for the 5 day eCourse! Been looking around and man are there some abbreviations here! I love it
. Fatty, cg snp, w- somethings and g-what nots. So much info...going to look and hopefully grab my "CG SNP"
after work today.
I think you are going to get your CGSP w/ SFB. (CharGriller Smokin' Pro with Side Fire Box). It's sometimes hard to keep up with the abbreviations. LOL!

Hope you enjoy the site!!

Take care, have fun, and do good! (again)

dont forget the rule is nobody eats until the pictue is taken let them wait and let them smell it for awhile they are soo good.
Good luck and Good Smoking
