I have the inexpensive master forge smoker that is sold at lowes for $60. I would like to try to smoke a sirloin tip roast on it tomorrow, and I have yet to use the smoker. My husband attempted to use it for ribs one night while I was at work, and he said they turned out pretty terrible. I have been reading what I can about the smoker, but still am not sure what to do. I see that the minion method is what I should use to light the charcoal. I have a stupid question: Do I put the wood in with the charcoal or is there a separate place for that? I am 100% new to smoking with a smoker, we usually would use our propane grill with water pans and a pan of wood chips. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and I really don't want to have to do any mods just yet.
