  1. I just moved into a new house and what came with it is this brick smoker/rotisserie. I have never smoked anything before nor do I really know where to start on supplies and equipment accessories to properly use this smoker. If you could give some advice for a newbie like me I would greatly appreciate.
    Thank you!

    Good evening Travis, you came to the right place.

    First off it would be really helpful if you could post a couple pictures of your smoker.

    Secondly, if its a brick smoker with a rotisserie,  I'd love to see how its set up.

    If its truely a wood fired smoker, all you need is some seasoned hickory.   As to what to try first, I would recommend pork butt.   Its really hard to mess this cut of meat up.  Even if you over cook it, there is always some good in it.   

    Smoke at a temp of 225-250F  to a Internal temp (IT)  of 200F.    I foil at 160F but thats just me.   

    I'd love to see your setup.

    Welcome to the board, Travis! Yes, post pics so we can all be armchair quarterbacks JUST KIDDING.

    I respect the effort that someone put into building some old outdoor grill/smoker. I have found a few in the parks. They became overgown and forgotten. So far I've re-fired one of them but there are two more on the bank of the Scioto River.

    Blue, that sounds awesome,   I'd love to see pictures in a new thread.   Most folks wouldn't know a smoker when they see it.   
  5. Still trying to figure out why my phone won't let me upload the pictures. Sorry to keep yall waiting work has been busy.

    I think the phone has a desk top setting try that.
