Hi all,
I've been cooking for years, 99% gas, thought I'd get into slow cooking
I thought 'how hard could it be'?
1st smoke was a disaster... 2nd was edible....3rd yet to come.
I've a 22" weber gold with this thingy called a smokenator.

Do I have access to recipes on the boards if I'm not a subscribing member?

Welcome aboard.

Smoking in a Kettle is very doable. Did you find the temps got away on you? What meats have you tried thus far?

Here's a vid for a good method for low & slow.

Thanks guys, It's a nice welcome.

To answer Dave's question, the first cook was both a whole chicken and 3.5lb pork roast - cooked about 9 hours 275 f, I added too much wood and it tasted too smokey. The second time I did a pulled pork, omitted the wood chips and it was pretty good.
Tomorrow I'm going to try 2 racks of baby back ribs, I'm going to try your snake method - 3 hours o n a rib rack then wrapped in tin foil for 90 min then on the grill to caramelize with some sauce.
I'll search the link mentioned for a rub and next time I'm in Buffalo I'll pick up some of Famous Dave's rubs.
I'll let you know how it turns out.
