Lawman from Wichita Kansas. Just bought a Charbroil double-door smoker with off-set fire box and have gotten my feet wet with smoking a couple of chickens, then did the bbq thing with some leg quarters. Eager to explore the world of smoking and bbq. Any suggestions on starting out will be appreciated.

Hi Lawman, I am also new here and have gotten lots of help. I just got the single door Char-broil smoker and have used it twice so far. Had a few problems but the folks here helped me out did some ribs last week and they came out ok but I'm getting the hang of it. I'm not the "offical welcome person" but, Welcome to the board and have fun.

Welcome lawman. You've found a great site that I'm sure you'll enjoy. If you're a fan of chicken, or what my Dad affecionatly calls yardbird, you should try a beer-can chicken. They come out real juicy and flavorful. In the poultry section you'll find two or three different threads on how everyone here does theirs.
