    Hi, my names Tony and I'm from Georgia. I've smoked before, but just really getting into it. I smoked a couple of butts last weekend, they were okay but I hope to get much better. Doing a whole chicken today, guess we'll see how it turns out. I just bought an electric smoker, hoping it turns out to be what I was hoping for. I'm definitely open to any and all tips and suggestions. Thanks.

    Thanks for the welcome. The chicken turned out okay, think it could've cooked a little longer although I got the internal temp to 165-170.

    So Ga smokers, just finished my new TMLE. Sealed every gap/ connection/ bolt etc w/ Rutland 500 sealant. Bought a rope stove gasket for the lid and firebox, ran out 3/4 way around the lid. Still need to make my charcoal box, get tuning plates, and extend the stack down to grate level from what I've learned from the experts here. Anyone have tips on building a charcoal box? Anybody recommend outing gasket in the firebox as well? Hoping to cure it tomorrow, and do my first smoke Saturday. Thx all!
