My name is Demont. I have never smoked before..ever. I just received a Char-Broil Offset Smoker 430 for Father's Day (still in the box). I am known for grilling my famous Jerk Chicken and my Mouth watering Steaks. I currently use a Char-Broil Commercial Series Grill. However, smoking I absolutely have No Experience! I have learned a bunch just by poking around on this site. I look forward to all the advice I know I will receive from you all.Happy Smoking!!!
