I've only been smoking/grilling for the past year.  I remember my family using charcoal and lots of lighter fluid when I was a kid, and I last used charcoal in my apartment during college.  Since then, I've been using propane. (old stainless)

I got myself a Master Forge Dually (Lowes for $199) last year, and I got hooked.  Since then, I've picked up a Char-Griller off of CL for $40 and added the SFB.  I just finished my mods (thanks to the posts/pics on this site).  I also recently picked up an older Brinkmann Smoke and Pit for $20 (lady sold it to me b/c it was her ex-husbands...ouch).  After about $125 is re-furbishing, I am now the proud owner of the Fire Engine Red Brinkmann...

The info on this site is awesome.  Thanks in advance, and hopefully, I can start posting worthy Q pics as my offering in return...

Thanks everyone.  I'm having my parents over for dinner tonite but just direct grilling up some chicken.  And thanks for Beer-B-Q for the link for the e-course.  I've read so many posts that I feel I have a good handle, but I've been looking for something like this.  I considered an actual course, but we're in the process of saving for a new house, so no $900 bbq courses!  But with a new house means....new (bigger) smoker!  I'll probably get rid of a couple of the ones I have.

Thanks again for the warm welcome!

Welcome Kevine....no need for a 900 dollar BBQ course Reading and asking questions here will teach you all you can stand. I have made some good stuff just by reading around and searching. Have fun with it.
