    My name is Adam. I have been grilling for years on the standard round charcoal grill. Always have done lots of indirect cooking and added wood chips but never any real smoking. For fathers day my wife got me a new grill. A GrillPro grill with side offset smoker box. Real similar in design to the Char-Griller models I see. I smoked some chicken qtrs the first weekend I had it for about 5 hrs and did a few slabs of spare ribs last weekend for about 5 hrs. The chicken came out pretty good. The ribs weren't quite as tender as I was hoping for. I think I just need a little more practice.
    Thanks in advance for the help I am sure I'll need and I look forward to picking your brains for advice.
     
  2. Welcome Adam. On the left side of the page you will notice the 3-2-1 method for smoking ribs. I was able to do this on a Weber with great results. I am sure you will do fine with your new smoker. If not just ask around, and you are sure to get help. Good luck, and enjoy practicing![​IMG]

    Hey Adam, Welcome to SMF. Never fear, help is HERE!

    As others have said, you can most likely find help 24-7 here usually, or at least pretty darn quickly. Nothing is more fun than bein up late and running into someone in a panic over a butt or brisket and calming them down...LOL!

    Enjoy your time here!

    Thanks for the welcome. I thought as I get familiar with the new smoker I would stick with ribs and chicken. Master maintaining temp for 5 hours before I try an 18 hour brisket smoke. But I gotta say after some of the pictures I have seen here I think a fattie is next. Thanks again for the welcome.
