I stumbled onto this forum searching for info on a Char-Griller I found on Craigslist. Wow what a long thread that was! I am truly glad I found this place. Admittedly, I haven't smoked a single thing in my life. And for the past 10 yrs have been exclusively grilling on a piece of junk gas grill that's on its last leg. Looking forward to learning how to smoke some great bbq!
