    Hey all. I have only tried smoking once so far, got kinda frustrated, but had fun. I'm on here looking for tips and ideas, so please feel free to share some knowledge. I'm using a Brinkmans smoke 'n grill, very basic but was told it's also very simple. Look forward to practicing to become a good smoker.

    Welcome, everything you need is here. Just search around.
     
  5. First of all do not trust the theomonter you have on your smoker buy a digital themonter and check it out with the boliling water test if it test at 212 degrees your fine if not i adjust the temp. example test at 206 degrees add 6 degress to it so this tell me its at 212 degrees.
    Use dry wood only I soak mine but thats up to you and depends on what you are smoking go by temp. not time
    hope this helps you out.
    be sure to sign up for Jeff's course and you will learn a lot and keep refering back to it.
    I started out with this one and had great results.

    Welcome to the SMF my friend. It doesn't matter what smoker you use, practice does take you to perfection, so keep on smoking.
