Hey y'all, I hope you can stand another rookie. My wife bought me one of these below for Christmas. And speaking of this particular smoker, if any of you have any tips, complaints, or suggestions I certainly welcome them. I have grilled for many years but smoking is a whole new ballgame for me thus the main reason I am here. I will try to read more than I post but I do hope you will put up with me as I'm sure to have a few, well probably a lot of, questions. Thanks for having me and thanks Jeff for hosting the site.

hi, richard, and welcome to SMF, the best smoking meat forum on the 'net. ask any questions you may have, you don't learn by keeping quiet. you sign up for jeff's 5-day e-course? loads of good info in there. i don't have the smoker you have. mine is similar; i built it using a 55-gallon drum, with a side firebox for the chargriller like yours for my firebox.

Welcome to SMF, Richard. Check out the Charcoal Smoker Forum. There is a thread there talks mods for this type of smoker.

Thanks for the welcome. I have looked at some mods I need to make like adding a heat baffle, lowering the thermometer even with the cooking grate, and extending the smoke stack a little lower. I guess I have one question for cajun_1, even though I've never met a cajun from Idaho, did you also make these or any other modifications to your smoker. And GoFish I plan to start with a Boston Butt, a brisket, and some veggies as I"ve heard those are the most forgiving.

Ozark, Yes I did all the mentioned mods to my Silver Smoker. I also did 1 that you didn't mention. A charcoal box. This box allows the ashes to fall to the bottom of the fire box and not smother the fire out.
