    Welcome! Mballi already welcomed you to all of us' mutual addiction, and let me welcome you to the chargriller addiction. It's dumb sounding I know, but it starts with adding a baffle to keep the food on the firebox side from drying out, and the next thing you know, you're supergluing a massive wound on your hand back togather but you're not worrying about the pain or chance of infection, you're thinking about what the temp variance from fire box side to chimney is going to be and then the next thing you know you're showing up for work a half an hour late smelling like a campfire with tired bloodshot eyes blessing your boss for supplying you with the funds to finance your habbit and cursing the company he owns for taking up time that you could be smoking, modding, or eating.

    Good Night Trashcan!.... Quit telling my story [​IMG]

    Yesterday, we had a live remote at the radio station I work for. I called the guy who was supposed to be working it with me and told him I was running late and would be there soon.

    What I did not tell him was that I was up till midnight the night before smoking and turned around and was up at 5am loading the smoker again so I could have a tasty treat before the remote and it took a half hour longer than I anticipated because of the cool early am temps and a light breeze that kept messing with my temp.

    Good thing he works for me.... [​IMG]

    Steve.... welcome... you stand at a cross you must choose....jump right in...or run...and don't look back...(Like you really have a choice) [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Welcome to SMF, your in the right spot for info.
  19. Thanks all for the welcome. Its been almost a week since my first smoke, and it turned out to be a tab bit too smokey or as I've read on the forum creosote flavored. I should have done my homework instead of giving in to my excitement of getting my side firebox. I've done my homework on the forum and now have a better understanding of what needs to be done for my spareribs that I'm planning to cook tomorrow. I'll get some pre, present, and post pics posted. Again that all for the welcome.
