    Hi guys, I am new here. I have always been a fan of outdoor cooking, grilling, smoking, etc. I really enjoy it. Never been extremely great at it, but want to get better. My intrest has been peaked regarding the clay pot smoker seen on the Alton Brown video, so I want to give this a try. I also have a Char Broil grill that I need to get the side fire box for and start smoking with it. Anyway, hello guys!!! I plan to study up and hope to learn a lot here.

    Welcome to the site. Glad you joined us. The Alton Brown smoker will work but I'd save the money and put it towards your side firebox

    Welcome Ashman, you found the right place to answer all your smoking questions. I too have wanted to make a clay pot smoker, aka, the poor mans Big Green Egg. Have read many postive things about them. For sure get your firebox for your smoker though. Read thru the forum a bit, ask some questions, and you will be armed with the knowledge to turn out some great smokes. Can't wait to see your contributions to the forum.
