Welcome to the board!

Are you looking for an offset smoker, bullet, towable rig? How big? Will it be used a smoker only or double up as a grill? Price range? I'm sure there are some other questions to ask that I forgot. The char griller is a popular smoker on this board with quite a bit of discussion lately. Let us know your needs and I'm sure you will find a smokin deal on your new BBQ. Here is link to a good BBQ store, and where I purchased my smoker from.

Wow wannabbq that is quite a first question! I don't think it can be answered just yet though, there's too much to it. It kind of like buying a car. There are so many makes and models that do so many different thing that it would be unwise to just say this is the one you want without knowing more. Like waas said tell us more about what you are looking to do with your rig. There are lots of people here who will happily share their knowledge and preferences. There are also lots of places you can go to get one without having to order online, and if you can't find it local there are even more places online.
Be patient and we'll do our best to help you find your rig and get you q'ing in no time.

By the way glad you joined, hope you stick around and enjoy the insanity.

First thanks for the quick replys,
and sorry for being so vague, I would like an offset smoker & grill.

as for size I am thinking the biggest thing I want to do is maybe a suckling pig :D .

It's mostly me and my wife, but when I do bbq, all I can really say is where's the MEAT :shock:

And I am glad I joined to :D

Wow Thanks for the link wlfpkrcn, the first one I saw on the smoker section is just what I am looking for, the bbq-chef.

But I think I better go back to K-Mart, they had it on sale for $159.00.

The key to the chargriller is to buy the super pro without the offset fire box and add it on later for a few more bucks. It still keeps the price under $200 and gives you a few extra features. Its a great grill and as of late there is a ton of info on it here. I own one myself.

wannabbq,

You can go here to order it and you can get both for 150 bucks.

Here's the link.

They used to have free shipping but if you have a Lowes nearby, print this out and take it there and they can probably price match. That's how I got my chargriller for 149.98. Plus, I bought the cover for 20 bucks! Can't beat getting all of that for 170!

Welcome to the board. I'm sure you'll start obsessing over Q like the rest of us.

You won't be disappointed. I was deciding between the Chargriller and the bbqgalores Bar-B-Chef model. I just liked the Chargriller because it was bigger than the BarBChef model and the charcoal rack in the main chamber has a height adjustment. But I definitely don't think you can go wrong with any one of them. Smoke is smoke and it sure tastes great!

I have decided to buy a Chargrill with SFB. I would like to thank everyone for the great info posted on these boards. I have a Weber Summit Gas Grill, but I have been wanting to venture into the world of true BBQ. I am sure this will get me well on my way. If there are any suggestions, tips, or recipes that anyone would like to share with me, I would appreciate it.

I would also like to thank BBcue-Z for the great post on seasoning. I printed it out, and will follow it well. I did have a question about the foil. Do you have to change the foil after each grill? Thank you in advance for your help.

Welcome Grill4you


You won't be disappointed in the Chargriller. I don't know how everyone else does it, but I'll change the foil when it needs to be changed. Some might change it after each cook & I might also. It just depends on what shape it's in after the cook.

Welcome to the board Grill4U! :D

Congrats on the new CG. You have a couple of great outdoor cooking appiances.

If I remember correctly I think folks were changing the foil after 3 or 4 cooks depending on condition.
