Howdy... As the title implies I'm very new at this smoking buisness. In the warm months I become the household outdoor cook, you know the "I'm not heating up the kitchen" thing. I do ok but, while steaks and burgers are ok, it gets old and I was looking for something else / better. Then I ran across smoking-meat.com ! I have a char-broil electric and have had mixed results. I have much to learn!!!! From the little I've looked around, this forum seems to be just what I was looking for.
