Hello, I am pretty new to smokoing meat but have tried several times. Sometimes good , sometimes not so much. I have a small barrel smoker w/ firebox (planning to build my own, just gathering materials) that I bought from Home Depot. It took a while to figure out how to get temps consistant but I am OK on that now. I have turned out some pretty good fish, mostly King fish & grouper but have had less success with other meats. Looking forward to learning from some of the masters here.
