Well, I got my father's day present early. The wife and kids and I were at Walmart and saw this: http://www.charbroil.com/charbroilwa...uctSeriesID=17 It's an "American Gourmet Smoker, BBQ, and Grill" Please, someone, tell me it's not complete crap. :) It's small, but the kids are 6 and 3 and don't eat much. I wanted something that I could use to grill and smoke, and this looked like the ticket. Can someone tell me I didn't throw away 80 bucks? Can someone point me to mod threads if required? Anyway, I'm VERY VERY VERY new to this, I know how to eat good 'q (I spend 2 weeks in KC every year) but I have no idea how to cook it. I'm picking up a lot on the forums, I'm reading like mad and got the "audio CD" from this site to help get me started. I did grill steaks, and they were amazing, but grillin' ain't smokin'. :) So far, my only trouble is keeping the temp down, but I think I had WAY too many coals. The firepan (and the cooking area) are really small. Nice to meet you all!
