    Hello. My name is Clint, but m screen name is K-rose. My first time smoking was a 5 lb brisket, on a side box smoker. Mmmm, I have a smoker that has no separate box for the wood, which makes for a trickier smoke... Can't wait to learn some awesome things from you guys... Ps I use pecan, cause it falls out of my trees,lol
  2. Hello and Welcome to our addiction.  Many good folk here with a load of experience that they are more than willing to share.  If you have specific questions just start a thread and someone with experience will be along soon to offer advice.  All info you can provide us with such as smoker type, location and so on will help us answer any questions you may have, and pictures help a bunch.  Spend some time doing some research on the forums, tons of advice and recipes already available there.  Check out Jeff’s 5 day smoking E-Course ( link below ) that will help you get started.  We look forward to your contributions.  Have fun.  Good luck.  Keep Smokin!

    Welcome to the board, Clint! Sounds like you're using a "direct" rig, meaning the food is directly over the heat. Yes that can be tricky, but there's a big overlap between "grilling" and "smoking" where you can play.

    Thanks, ya I just got it. The ribs turned out great though. I still had a hard time fine tuning the heat.
