I can grill any thing and everything so thought I would expand into the smoking world. Smoked many items on the grill, not the same but flavorful at least, but have alwasy wanted to truely smoke meats. So I did as many have and tried to stay cheap on the first purchase and after reading review after review I went with the "red bullet" by Brinkman. From what I know, all in all cant complain. I am going to make some of the modifactions that I have read and will see if they are worth it. So far I have smoked a beer can chicken, 5 lbs for about 4 hours. Came out great, a bit too smokey but I guess that will come with experience. Also a nice slab of salmon, a bit dry but still very good. So my daughter is having a bday party and I want to offer some good smoked foods to the fathers, and looking for ideas as to what and tips. Wings cant go wrong? Butt, can a newbie pull it off for guest? Brisket, not everyone cares for it. Ribs? Any thoughts and ideas much apprecciated. Thanks, from the new guy Chris. Hey, what do you thinkg about smoked chicken nuggets for thee kids, lol.
