    Hey guys, I just stumbled across this forum, and website this morning.
    It seems to be full of information on pretty much everything i need to know.
    I signed up for the 5 day eCourse, so hopefully that comes through the email and i canget started.

    I have ZERO experience in smoking meat, but i have plenty in EATING meat which has been SMOKED. [​IMG]
    I have a BBQ here with a hood (lid) with a thermometer inbuilt into the lid, can i convert that into a smoker using Propane as the heat source instead of coals? the bbq looks much like this http://www.mrstoves.com.au/images/bbq01.jpg

    I have seen a few photos on the forum of a barrel hanging off the side, would it work with propane BBQ's?

    Anyway, I hope to learn much from you guys here and eventually have an awesome set up which i can cook anything i want in, from ribs to Salmon.



    Cheers
    Rob

    Hello SFR and Welcome to SMF. You can use many things for a heat source, and many smokers use propane. The key is INDIRECT heat. That's a key difference in smoking Vs. grilling. well, that and the smoke is made by the wood...not the food LOL! Enjoy!

    Hi Bassman, do you think my BBQ will be right to smoke in, would it be easy to modify?

    I also want to make smoked meat, you know the stuff you see when you are in a delicatessen, I would not know where to start with that stuff.
