    I am a first time smoker from Denver Colorado and am ready to get started. I just got the Char-Grill Super Pro for my birthday after much research. The biggest problem I read with an offset smoker is hot and cold spots. I think I solved this problem with just the parts provided. I did not have to go buy sheet metal and create a baffle like many people suggested. If anyone is interested on how I did it I would be happy to share and show photos.
    I am going to smoke my first pork shoulder this weekend and still have not decided what to use for a rub. I prefer more of a sweet flavor vs spicy. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Welcome to SMF. Take advantage of the great info here both to read and from the members who love to share their knowledge. It's a great place to learn the art of smoking.

    You might as well post the pics and info on what you did with your smoker. [​IMG] You will definitely be asked about it.

    Welcome to the family, there are a ton of good recipes floating around here.

    I use 2 rubs, 1 is Jeffs that you can get by taking his e-course
    and the other is one I got from a buddy several years back.

    here is mine
    ½ cup Paprika
    1/4 cup Kosher Salt, fine ground

    1/4 cup Sugar

    2 tablespoons Mustard Powder

    1/4 cup Chili Powder

    1/4 cup Ground Cumin

    2 tablespoons ground Black Pepper

    1/4 cup granulated garlic

    2 tbs Cayenne

    For more hot & spicy increase Mustard powder and Black Pepper to 1/4 cup each

    Use this as a guideline and adjust to make it more sweet

    Good Luck

    Welcome Aboard Chad,
    There are several ways to post your picts. The one that I do and give me nice big photos in the thread is to dump my photos into shutterfly. Then as I want to insert a pict into a thread I just right click on the photo I want in shutterfly and select "copy". Then in the thread right click and select "paste".

    There's also a section on here (sorry, can't remember what it's called) where you can practice posting and other stuff related this site.

  17. Chad, welcome to first day of the rest of your smokin' life! Once in, you're doomed to a life of hickory-smelling t-shirts and beer drinking before 9a. I've got two Chargriller pro's. Really like 'em. As for pictures, check out this how-to post by Erain.

    I tell you, Dad ain't kidding. I just wanted something to replace an old broken down gas grill. Now I "Q" every weekend. And the rest of the week I scope out recipes and tips.

    At least it keeps me off the streets..........
