    Hi.. Just got a smoker a couple of weeks ago and am really revved up to try some new things.

    Last week I did some ribs, this week did a chicken. I do have some fundamental problems in getting this thing to temp. Both times I had to finish it on the grill. All I can say is I am in flavour heaven.

    I am starting err off slow though. Any tips or help would be appreciated. I have a grill smith charcoal water smoker, same as the brinkman ecb.

    Here is tonight's beer can chicken - smoked with Montreal chicken spices.

    Hi Everyone.. thank you all for the wonderful welcome !!. The chicken was my second smoking attempt (first chicken), and I had a lot of heat problems with my unit. So looks like mods are coming, thanks to some help from a nice lady in Lousiana === THANKS === . I have a Grillsmith charcoal water smoker (sometimes sold as Kingsford), very similar to brinkman ECB only accept that mine came with a grate for the coals, and lid has a proper thermometer, and vent.

    Since I am new at smoking I used little wood chips, so I can gauge flavour with out being too over powering. The charcoal I used is Natures Grilling. The briquettes themselves give off a mild smoke,. The bird was sitting in there for a long time around 6 hrs.. and eventually had to finish it in on my grill. I used a Montreal style chicken spice on it and used a 1/2 can of moosehead Canadian lager beer. Despite the long time and heat issues, it turned out pretty  tasty with a light smoky flavour. My little one is not so keen on it, but the queen liked it.

    I look forward to learning more as I continue on a new journey in flavour country.
