    Greetings - I'm new here, Live in Roswell GA, just north of Atlanta. Long time cook, but new to smokers. I have a Char-Broil vertical electric smoker. Using it for the first time today.

    Doesn't produce as much smoke as I expected.  But the test is about 2 hours away. Put a small pork roast on early and some chicken thighs a couple hours ago.

    I'm finding the temp control to be a bitch. Nudge the control a tiny bit and it changes by 40 degrees. Would really like something with a true thermostat.

    I'm sure I'll have questions, but right now wanted to introduce myself.
