Learning to smoke

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by lirrost, May 7, 2013.

  1.   Hey all, newbie smoker from CO here, looking to get some info and chat about smoking!

    I received a bunch of gift cards from friends and family this past Christmas towards a new grill (as mine was old and decrepit). I recently purchased a Sears Kenmore 6 burner grill with side burner and attached smoker (photo below) - http://www.sears.com/kenmore-6-burner-stainless-steel-front-gas-grill/p-07123766000P

    Got the grill Saturday morning, grilled zucchini boats and prime rib on Saturday night and smoked a pork tenderloin and some baby back ribs on Sunday. It was my first attempt at smoking and I loved the results for the most part!! (more pics below). I had an issue keeping the temp where I wanted it - I'll probably submit a threat in another forum here, but apart from that, we're loving the new toy!
