  1. hey everyone,
    my name is Paul i currently live in Nixa, Mo by way of Kansas City. i'm 23 years old and have been addicted to bbq as far back as i can remember. i have a weber grill and a chargriller smoker with side box. i'm very eager to learn the finer art of smoking. i can search the internet for a recipe and smoke it, but it's the details that i lack. if anyone has any tips on using the smoke box and regulating temp and maybe some ideas on recipes i would love to hear. thanks everyone, hope to talk to you all soon
  2. Welcome Paul. I live in Joplin. I know exactly where Nixa is because I went to Missouri State. Gotta love the SPR. I have only been a member here for about a week and this is a great forum for advice and ideas. Everyone is really nice and willing to help us new folks learn the craft. Welcome again!
  3. Greetings Paul, from just down the road from you in Harrison, ARK.
    You'll have no problem finding info on this forum. Just take the time to read these threads, and you'll be able to master any of it.

    Hey Paul, welcome to the forums. I'm also in Arkansas. There is some great info here. If you get a chance be sure to check out Jeff's 5 day E-course. I thought I knew a little about smoking but took the course and could see I knew nothing. So check it out.

    Also for your Chargriller here is a link to a post that show some Mods that MossyMo made for his.

    Again, Welcome.

    Hey Paul, first off welcome to the site. If you need assistance you came to the right place. The people here are phenominal. They love to share what they know. If you are new to the chargriller smoker with SFB you may want to visit some of the mods threads. I think one is a sticky in the charcoal smoker section. It really does help to do some of the minors tweaks they describe.

    Dont forget about the free 5 day e-course offered. It really has alot of good basic info. I think there is a link for a e-book format.

    Have fun and keep on smokin.

    Welcome to SMF Paul. This really is a great site to learn from. Be sure to sign up for the 5-day ecourse offered by Jeff, located on the left side of the screen.

    There are so many threads and posts about the Chargriller and temp control. Run some various searches and you will soon see the modifications that are made to control the temps and make it more fuel efficient.

    Looking forward to your posts and don't forget to bring us the Q-view of your food.

    Welcome Paul from Central Missouri- 2 hours North.
    As many have already said, you can't go wrong with the e-course and any question you have probably has been answered before. Do a little research (which answers most questions and creates others) and ask. The folks here at SMF are always glad to help. They only ask for Q-view and to pass your knowledge onto others.
    Look forward to seeing your posts.
