    Hello from Seattle

    Hi everyone, David from Seattle here. I discovered the Smokenator through this site about a year ago and have been back several times in the last few days trying to figure out my next step.

    I started smoking about three or four years ago on my roommate's burned-out propane grill on our apartment's deck. There was no tank or attachment by the time I had moved in, so we McGuivered it into a charcoal grill. I wanted ribs one day, looked up smoking and made my first batch on a wing and a prayer.

    Today I have a bit more experience, a back yard and, by comparison, a much nicer set-up. Looking forward to joining the conversation and seeing what more I can learn. And, hopefully, figure out if I'm going to augment my current rig, or go for something new.

    That works for me! Welcome.


      Thanks for the support. Greatly appreciated!

      I too once cooked with charcoal on a gas grill for my pastor years ago. Thankfully it was only chicken and shish-kabobs.


        David, Welcome!! You are going to like it here. I look forward to your posts.
