  1. I love this site already! I've only had a smoker since March and love smoking and love the tips and advice from here. My wife got me a Chargriller Duo with the SFB for my birthday and I love it. I have added a charcoal basket and a dryer tube but thats all I've done as far as mods go. So far I've smoked a turkey, a couple venison roasts, some fatties (which I had never even heard of until this site) and a brisket. Everything has turned out great luckily.

    I am looking at maybe getting a portable smoker for camping trips if anyone has any suggestions.

    Thanks!

    Welcome to SMF,

     I use a small grill with some wood chunks when camping and it works great.

    Happy smoking [​IMG]

    Welcome to the forum! [​IMG]

    Not sure how small you need for your camping smoker, but there are a lot of the vertical charcoal smokers that are fairly compact. If you got the $$ the 18.5" Weber Smokey Mountain is really nice, but it is one of the bigger ones. You could also look at the Brinkman round vertical smokers, they require a little modification, but have served lots of people well for a very low price.

    Welcome to SMF, Glad to have you with us.


    This is the place to learn, lots of good info and helpful friendly Members.
     

    Many of our members have years of experience in smoking meat.  They are more than happy helping Newbies learn the art.
     

    We have members who cure there own Bacon, Hams, Jerky, Snack Sticks, Make Their own Sausage, etc. if you want to learn,
    this is the place. 
     

    Don't be afraid to ask questions of them and follow their advice. You won't be sorry, you will be making great Q in no time at all...

    Just remember, when curing your own meats follow the instructions included with the cure to the letter, this is not something to experiment with.  


    Never use more cure no mater if it is Tender Quick or Cure #1 or Cure #2 than the manufacturer says to use, this can be very dangerous.
     


    Tender Quick and Cure#1 or Cure #2 are not interchangeable, neither Cure #1 interchangeable with Cure #2 or vise versa
