My First Smoke... Ever
I've been lurking on these forums for quite some time and joined up a few days ago because I was fortunate enough to receive a small Brinkmann Smoke 'N Grill as a gift. I'm completely new to smoking and my only grilling experience has been on a gasser, so I need as much fundamental advice as I can get (having never cooked with charcoal).
I plan on giving the SnG it's first run this weekend with a Boston butt. Nothing else. I want to keep it simple. I've got a 12# bag of Kingsford Comp. Briquets, wood chips, and the butt. What else should do I need to know?
I'm aware there is plenty to learn over time, but I'm basically trying to avoid being blindsided by the unkown (by me).
Thanks in advance, and count another voice to the many who already praise this community. It's great!
