First Time Smoker

Just bought the Char-broil silver smoker with some gift money, and just had made my first smoked dinner. I smoked two chickens, one pork shoulder, and some sausage to fill up all the extra room!!! Everything came out excellent and all my friends complimented. I had little knowlegde but the chicken came out awesome and I didn't even brine. After looking at this site I definitely must try that next time. And although the pork was delicious it wasn't as tender as I hoped, I was going for the pulled pork but now know I didn't cook it look enough or until 200 degrees, I look forward to trying Jeff's big mistake. I especially like the carolina style pulled pork. I look forward to learning a lot from everyone and eating more smoked meat.
