    Hey Folks,

    Just found the site and man do I need help!! I just bought a Chargrill gas/char/smoker combination. I have never smoked anything before and I would really like any help you folks could provide. I have about 35 head of buffalo and I'm getting ready to buy about 10 head of cattle to compliment my farm. Tried to smoke a roast and when I got done with it you could of used it as a weapon!! Not a very good first attempt. Our farm is in Hickory NC. Thanks for all your help in advance. Jon

    Is there a good place to start on this forum?

    Pick a meat that you want to smoke then go to that forum and get some ideas and see what other have done and how they did it.

    Bison is a very lean meat and will dry out quickly. Most folks that do bison don't cook/smoke much above medium rare. Another tip to have a moister product is to place bacon strips across the top.

    Welcome to the forum. Just like everyone has mentioned, pick a meat, then look for a forum section ie, beef, pork, fish. If you want something simple to start with I would suggest a fatty.
