  1. Hi everyone! i'm an extreme noob when it comes to barbeque, so please be gentle :D

    a friend of mine gave me a brinkmann smokin' pit(the old version)a year ago, as my old weber finally bit the dust.
    sofar i've just used it as a grill, but i'm ready to take the next step and start somikg my own meat.

    what tips and advice do you guys have for a total noob who has never smoked meat before?
    and as far as mods to my smoker go, i have a welder, access to sheet steel and a fair amount of mechanical know-how (my wife says i'm a dangerous man, but every time i go into the garage she hightails it out of there.....maybe that wasn't a complement???)

    anyway, i look forward to talking to y'all and soaking up all the advice i can
    Thanks in advance,
    Bryan

    Hi Bryan, I know a lot of people in Ottawa, do you know Cecil Beatty? I used to Clerk for him at his auctions when he had his auction out on Hwy 68.

    Hey Bryan. Well you found us, the best place to learn all you can about the art of smoking meats. As per your question, "what tips and advice do you guys have for a total noob who has never smoked meat before?"

    Read a bunch of the posts here that interest you and ASK QUESTIONS[​IMG].
    I asked a ton of them, and I still do as I'm always learning more. But I must warn you, this place and the hobby of smoking could lead to a smoking addiction......

    With that said, I'm glad your here and can't wait till you post some of your first bbq's for us to see.

    Now, get smokin.....
