Hi, I'm new to smoking. I'm a french Canadian so please forgive me if I make some mistakes in my texts. I am an hvac technician. I don't have a smoker yet, but I plan on building one. I'm open to sugestions and tips on how to begin, what to build, etc. I have a gas grill and an old gas grill modified to use charcoal. I tried smoking with them and had some success but I want more. I look foward to learn a lot around here.
