    My name is Doug, I just purchased a Chargriller smoker with the side firebox. Technically I've smoked before on a charcoal grill, but that's not really "smoking" now is it?....Wood chips in a foil pack with holes punched in it, if you're camping that's okay. No offense meant to anyone doing their smoking that way. Anyway, I figured I'd try stepping up to the plate with the BIG boys. I just ran my smoker with no food to get a handle on heat control and all, I think I have that part down. Tomorrow I'm smoking 2 split Turkey breasts about 3lbs each. I'll let you know how they turn OUT or if we had to eat OUT. I'm pretty much a master on a grill, but I'm definately open to ANY & ALL suggestions, ideas, and tips to "smoking." Here's to the start of a wonderful, & long, & SLOW relationship.

    great purchase & dry run but you will find- when ya add 50-100 lbs of meat to it it is a whole different beast as all that meat sucks up a lot of heat... it just takes time & practice... no worries about " the big boys" - it's just a learning thing that takes a lot of meat & dollards- welcome to smf.....

    Welcome aboard Doug, glad you found us! I also have the CG, which I have modified to get stable temps across the grates. Any questions you might have, just ask!

    12pm, fired up the coals! Around 1pm I'll put the 2-- 3lb. T-breasts on! Maybe by 4,5 or 6pm eating Smoked Turkey breast. Putting BBQ sauce on one, the other is S,P,G,O (salt,pepper,garlic powder,onion powder). Wood of choice is Mesquite. Wish me luck on my Maiden Smokage! Thank you all for the welcome messages and good wishes. I'll let ya's know how it turns out.

    Welcome! Remember to keep the temps on the high side for poultry, and enjoy the sublime relationship between the smoke and the smoker!

    Almost done, didn't get them on until 1:30pm, right now they're at 150 degrees....they look awsome! I know they are juicy, because when I inserted meat thermometer juice just flowed out, I just started "setting" sauce on one, and butter basting on the other...can't wait to sink my teeth into them!

    Well Doug-now is the time to introduce you to q-view. The discription of what you got sounds good but it would go a lot better if you could post some pic's (q-view) of the final product.

    BTW-welcome to the SMF family!!

    Well, I was trying to post some pics of my "masterpiece" and equipment, but they are too many KB's. I will say this, the T-Breasts were grrrrrrrrreat....even by my wife's standards...she doesn't like smoked meat. She loved those T-Breasts, as did the kids, everyone but me had seconds...Because there were no seconds left by the time I was ready for them. Thanks for the support!


    P.S. I've tied posting my pics in the "gallery" section...and can't. Must be doing something wrong, if anyone has an idea on how I can do this please let me know how. Hooray, I got a pic into my avatar, and a slightly larger one in my profile as my personal pic.
