Eager to smoke

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by prospectivesmoker, Jul 3, 2008.

  1. Hi,

    My name is Aaron. I'm 18, and will be using a standard charcoal grill to start with. Seeing as how I have yet to actually try smoking, I will wait on getting the actual smoker. I'm looking forward to learning all about smoking and giving it a shot. Thanks.

    There are plenty of grill skills that translate to the smoking pit, so keep working at it.

    Have you started shopping for a smoker yet?

    I am a good cook on the grill but when I got my smoker, I was a little over my head. I asked alot of ? and worked hard and tried somethings. Ask a question and these folks will help you out. I will look around a differnet thread to find info like the Chuck Roast I smoked last weekend. Jeff's class is very helpful too. There is nothing better then a good long smoke.

    Welcome to smf! Go to craigslist and search "bbq smoker" there are always a few around to look at and some have awesome prices too. FREE!!! If you have a weber 22" grill there is a link around here somewhere for a smoke box attachments that turns your weber into a smoker. a great place to start and makes the grill a "multitasker" hehehe thanks AB! look forward to seeing you around here more.
