Greetings Brethren:
Iíve been lurking for a couple of weeks picking up pointers here and there. (All of which were excellent) And I figured it was time I introduce myself.

Iím from Long Island, New York and Iíve been grilling for years. With in the past 2 years Iíve been grilling over wood. Itís more work then just lighting a gas grill, but so much more worth it.

When I saw a smoker in my local homedepot. I became the kid who really really wanted the toy on the shelve of the toy store. After much rationalization and envisioning myself in front of the smoker I bought it. Itís a Char-Broil Silver Smoker. Definitely a low end unit, but good for a beginner.

With the wisdom of the Brethren, I had a successful four hour run of maintaining a 220 Ė 250 temp range with out any problem. I believe Iím ready for a test chicken. I told my wife to be ready to order take out that night.

It should be fun. Iíll post my results good or bad.

Welcome nonthink !!!

Don't worry, Long Island is now the fifth capital of BBQ, after the old standbys of KC, Memphis, TX and NC styles.... you'll be a pro soon enough with lots of experience to share.

Good morning and welcome to the canteen.
I too have a Silver Smoker that I got some years back before New Braunfels sold out or was taken over by char broil. Indeed they are great to start out on and in my opinion work quite nicely. You see many at comps like our recent Grill Kings event. As the spiderman advises, there are a couple of mods you will want to make once you get going.

Welcome, my new bruddah!! I too had a Silver Smoker and she taught me a bunch. Had to move up to the 'Dera when I started running out of grill space, though.

Welcome Non, everyone starts small; its where you finish that counts, the guy who dies with the most toys, wins.
Enjoy the ride!
