I dont have much for gear yet,Just a plain old well seasoned gas grill that has some modifacations for inderecet cooking and I put my wood chips in a steal smoke box over the flames.I am looking at buying or making a smoker.
As far as experence I just cook for the family and freinds.It has only been a couple on years since I realized the difference between bbq and grilling.I want to learn how to bbq low and slow.

If you are at all interested in building an excellent, inexpensive smoker, read the UDS thread. By the time you finish it, you will be an old hand here. :biggrin:

I forgot to add that I was sent here by Barbefunkoramaque.I found him on utube and he sent me here.I cant beleive the # of peolpe with the same passion as I.My thought if it takes longer to cook it gives me more time to drink beer

To me, this is an unacceptable excuse.
I live in Wisconsin, which is much the same as Canada weather-wise. But we don't say "eh". Well, not much. Mostly we say "ya".
I have grills and smokers fired up year round. Where there is a will there is a way.
I agree with the previous post re the UDS thread. Everybody swears by them, and they are easy to build.
Welcome to the best clubhouse on the web!

Welcome to the addiction... Remember, there is no 12 step program for us!!!
I dont have much for gear yet,Just a plain old well seasoned gas grill that has some modifacations for inderecet cooking and I put my wood chips in a steal smoke box over the flames.I am looking at buying or making a smoker.

Like HeSmellsLikeSmoke said, give a quick look at the UDS thread in Q-Talk (Sorry, kind of a inside joke, it's over 2,700 postings). There is literally a ton of information on how to build an inexpensive smoker.

I dont think I will have much to add.There seems to be alot of experenced people I can learn from though
If you look around, there are a lot of us that post not only our successes, but also our failures... "Those that don't learn from history (or others mistakes) are bound to repeat them" (My Grandmother).

Also, don't be afraid to ask questions... We love questions... There are like 7,000 people on this forum that like doing nothing more than helping each other out!

I forgot to add that I was sent here by Barbefunkoramaque.I found him on utube and he sent me here.I cant beleive the # of peolpe with the same passion as I.My thought if it takes longer to cook it gives me more time to drink beer
We'll try not to hold that against you if you don't bring it up often... :lol:

As HarborMaster said, we don't accept that as a valid excuse... In my family we stop smoking food at 11:59 pm, December 31st and don't start up again until 12:01 am, January 1st... It's the with drawl I go through every year....

Seriously, there are ways around the cold and we can help you with it.

Once again, welcome!
