  1. Hey everyone. I am new to the forum. ConnerNA turned me on to this site. I bought my first full fledged smoking set up a couple of months ago and am still learning the tricks of the trade, but I think I am starting to get the hang of this thing. It is becoming addictive. I find myself at the store staring at the meat section and visiting my local small town butcher seeing what meats I can try smoking. So far I have done chickens, salmon, brisket, and pork loin. I am definately hoping to get this down enough to smoke a turkey come thanksgiving. Anyway, good to be on the site and I hope I pick up some tips.

    I have a Char-Griller with side fire box. My avator has a pic of my set up.

    Welcome to SMF glad you joined us. They are right there is lots of info and some great recipes too. I agree don't wait till Thanksgiving to do that turkey I find myself doing at least one a month anymore. I think theres lots of us can't go into a grocery store without checking the meat department. Have fun and happy smoking

  13. Welcome to SMF. Smoking turkey isn't too difficult. Just shoot or buy a twelve pound bird, marinate it overnight and smoke it with pecan or hickory. You should smoke it for approximately thirty minutes per pound and cook to an internal temperature of 170 degrees.

    Hey glad to see you made it on!

    Don't you love your char-griller?

    You might plan on bringing some fat-tire over this Friday. I have to work all day so might just do some chicken wings or something.
