    I actually typed my intro on Andy's Feed by mistake. (Hey Andy! Sorry about that) copy and posted below. I smoked my first chicken Tuesday on the GOSM propane smoker. Made LOTS of mistakes but the chicken still turned out edible :) look forward to learning lors! :
    >Hey y'all! I'm 31 from North Alabama! My sweet Mama passed away almost three years ago and I not have her grill and smoker. She was THE Queen of smoking meat and I wish I'd paid more attention when she was here. So now I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing as a way to honor her memory and feed the family like she used to. Thanks in advance for all your help! I have LOTS of questions!

    You know, your story is not uncommon. probably over half of use are here trying to re-gain the past memories and we all wish we'd paid more attention.

    Learn to use the search engine its knowledge and BS is beyond bounds. Then you can always open a thread about more specific helps you want, finally if its an exact question take it to one of those folks who are the smoking Guru's and start a conversation.

    Since it is roll call I'll try not to get too carried away, You'll learn I am normally a quiet person very introverted. But if you would click the "My Profile from above and take a minute to say something about you. Make sure and add some type of physical address however vague you need to be. Its helps in discussions and solving problems.

    Take notes, I know this sounds stupid but my mind doesn't remember even as well as it did last year. Its helps with what you'll be learning to be able to sort out problems or achievements. Here's some samples.  http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/attachments/3

    Remember its about enjoying the day, and the key word in smoking which is preached but a wizened old smoker around here is "Patience", Remember you can't rush perfection, and all go things come to he who waits. Patience is great word.

    If I can help, just ask but most here will all feel the same way.

    Remember to have fun and Bon Chance.

    Ok. I tried a few things differently this time. I pre made foil pouches to go in my wood box to make it easier to change them out. I'm using apple wood chunks and hickory chips mixed. I vented the top of the foil pack instead of using the wood box lid. I'm having issues with smoke and temp. now the wood just keep catching fire. I keep end up turning the gas up because the temp is too low. Once tried adjusted the (holes on the side and top that I can't think of the name for at those moment) trying not to ruin this chicken. Any quick tips? I'm 45mins in
