  1. My name is Rachelle, and I want to learn to smoke meats and fish. I loved the eCourse! So much to learn!....
    Right now I have a grill that at one time was a Gas grill, the burner and controls have been removed, and we use it as a Charcoal grill.
    I hope ya'll don't mind if once in a while I ask[​IMG] a dumb question!

    Ask away. Most here friendly and knowledgable and willing to help. Welcome to the forum. You will eventually need a smoker but you will find everything from do it yourself projects to big rigs costing thousands. Watch and ask and you will find one that suits your needs. Good Luck

    Hello Rachelle, and welcome to SMF! The grill you have can most likely be coaxed into smoking, but there's several lo-buck smokers out there that can make your life easier... look into an ECB style...cheap and can use the charcoal you already stock for the grill.

    We're here to help!

    Hey Painterslady,

    I agree with Richtee, your grill can smoke but will take a little more tending. Just use the offset cooking method and throw a few chunks of hickory on your lump charcoal. With practice, you should have success. I also agree that, if you can afford it, a Brinkmann upright charcoal smoker would be so much better. It is only about $50 at Loew's/home Depot. I have one and I love it. Glad you joined and definetly ask questions. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful.
