I have tried smoking before but I wasn't very good at it. I have since gotten a new smoker. It is a char/grille pro with the side fire box. I've used it as a grille and love it. now I am ready to try my hand at smoking with it.I think this time will be different. With the e course and maybe a little help along the way I feel I can do it. I'am also going to try to cook with a ducth oven. Any suggestions on my first attemp at smoking?
