    Hey everyone,

    My name is Ken and I live in Okinawa, Japan.  I purchased a offset smoker and now I'm staring at it wonder what's next so I'm on here hoping to learn from everyone's expertise.  Thanks.

  6. Welcome to the group!
  7. I'm glad I came across your posting.   My son and his family are scheduled to arrive in Okinawa around mid March.  He is at the stage of using a propane grill and cooks chicken pieces, beer can chicken, steaks, ribs.  Mostly hot and fast.  

    They are in limbo as to ship a large 4 burner grill or buy something over there. The minimal weight the military allow to ship has them wondering whether to ship with their belongings or buy new or maybe used?

    Is there grills/smokers available for purchase on base.  what about charcoal, wood chunks, pellets, or dust?  Or is this stuff needing to be shipped FPO/APO?

    Thanks, Brian

    Welcome Sisho

    Start off small and work your way up. It's best to learn on something forgiving like chicken wings and don't get frustrated.
