    Hello everyone my name is Dave I'm 32 live in Longview WA. I have been a griller for about 12 years now. I also enjoy cooking over the camp fire and dutch oven cooking. I have always used smoke chips and chunks when I cook but wanted to try smoking. I got a Brinkmann charcoal vertical smoker but had a hard time with temps because it wasn't insulated and the coals would smother themselves in the pan. I got a new grill for fathers day that has a smoker built in and seems with some tweaking it will work well. It is a Brinkmann Smoke 'n Grill Pro. The smoker is small but is insulated and after installing a needle valve to the burner I can maintain temp at 200 easily. This is important because I don't have much time in a day to waste with a 2year old running around. after I learn how to smoke meats well in this smoker I may build a bigger rig.

    [​IMG]to SMF!  We are so glad you joined us! Would you mind updating your profile to show the other SMF members where you are located?  Might meet a few neighbors!

    You might want to check out Jeff's Free 5 day E-Course, it has great information to use no matter your skill level!

    We love to see pictures of what you are cooking (or what we call q-views here at SMF).  To "upload the q-views" just follow the directions here and it will be easier. If you are using a cell phone, an IPad or a kindle, go to the main SMF page and click the Mobile button. Will make the uploads a bit faster too.

    If you didn't read the "Terms of Service" notes.....please do.  There are a few things that everyone should know about those pesky little rules before plunging into the forums and some guidelines of how to interact within the forums. Off site links are not allowed here at SMF per Jeff. Not that you have done anything wrong....just a little bit of FYI for new members!

    If you need any help roaming around the forums....just holler!  Happy to help out!
