Pre-School level smoker here

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by campbfh, Jun 20, 2013.

  1. Live in Central Illinois, USA.  Completely new to smoking meats, unless you count the rack of lamb I let burn last weekend in my propane grill.  Just purchased the Brinkmann Gourmet Smoke n'Grill (Electric) with a remote thermometer.

    I'm a do-it-myself sort of person, who is already into making beer and cheese (and someday wine).  Made the leap to buy a smoker because I just moved to Central Illinois from Atlanta, GA and I'm seriously missing real BBQ. I hope to start this weekend with possibly Cornish Hens, and in the next weeks get around to smoking a brisket, pork butt, and potentially salmon.

    Joined this forum to learn the basics about smoking, and hopefully learn some tips regarding the particular smoker I purchased.
