Hello all. This is Virgil from Phoenix, AZ, and I was just recently gifted with a Bar-B-Chef Charcoal Smoker. I am new to this smoking thing, but am really excited to get started this weekend. Before I get started, are there any suggestions, or better yet mods that I should do? I got this smoker because a family member wasn't able to keep the temperature up to a good level. I've looked online, and as best as I can tell, the smoker is pretty stock with no mods. It's been used before, but I was curious to know what I could do to help bring up the temp and keep it at a good level. Also I'm looking for a good recommendation of a meat that I can start with that's not too difficult to get awesome results. I appreciate any advice you can give, and look forward to getting started!
