Hey Folks. My names Eric and I'm obviously brand new to the forum. I've been getting into Smoking meats the past year or so but have been doing it only on my little Weber charcoal grill. I started taking an interest when smoking fish for fish spread. Over the past couple months I've done some chicken (cut 1/4's) with pretty good success too. We entertain allot so I just stepped up (a bit) to a Char Griller Smoken Pro with the side fire box for more grill space to be able to feed a crew. Got a pretty good deal on it and put it together today. I think it came out pretty nice and plan to cure it and season it tomorrow. I'm going to give it a trial run on Sunday with some Chicken just to get a feel for it. Really looking forward to my first smoke on the new smoker! I definitely have big plans for doing some butts and ribs in the coming weeks. Going to be a big learning curve I know. Anyways, just saying hello and thanks for having me.
