Hi all,

I am from New Zealand and have been smoking meat for approx 12 months. Learning a lot, trying different stuff with some excellent results. I use a Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker at this point but may invest in something bigger one day as I never seem to cook enough ribs!

There you go learning again, we all learn that our smokers are never large enough. You just learned it earlier than most

Hi Cheech,

I am interested in the type of fuel you guys use in USA. I can buy both lump and briquettes down here but it seems that lump burns to hot and fast and briquettes are the better option however I seem to get a chemical taste sometimes when using briquettes. Also, I dont seem to be able to get the temp over 200 even with all vents open. Maybe I should import a quantity of good fuel from USA!

Well what I use is an electric model and my charcoal unit is a larger unit I really do not have an issue with temperature.

Maybe one of the others that uses your model can give some input here.

Welcome to SMF.
Check the "charcoal smoker" section for mods. If there's a problem with a smoker, it's been addressed here.
BTW. My smoker is plenty big. :)

Hi Ultramag,

Not too difficult but pretty expensive. Worth it though, very well made.
