    Hi everybody. This site looks great.

    Been trying to smoke with consistency for a few years but without success. Started with a NBBD offset smoker but couldn't keep the temp steady for the life of me. Last year I started smoking on my old Weber kettle with 3 firebricks to keep the temps steady ( 2 on edge across the coal grate and 1 over the coals). This has been working great and I have no problems hitting 225-250 for 7+ hours. Not sure I want to go back to the NBBD.

    Anyway, this forum seems very friendly and I look forward to learning from you all.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hey Mike. Welcome to smf. After doing some reading asking questions you should be able to get your success rate up. I know I did.

    Welcome to SMF! As far as the offset... consider a charcoal basket. And I dunno what an "NBBD" is..but where's it exhausted at? Send in a pict of it. And there's tuning plates to consider as well.... Enjoy!
