Thanks! Yes, I made something really simple and not too expensive to begin... smoked burgers. Of course I messed them up and they were too dry, but on the bright side my dog is loving them as training treats! I next smoked some ribs but I got the KJ too hot too fast and couldn't get the temp stabilized after that. They were still good with the exception of being too dry and done too soon. Tomorrow I'm going for a beer can chicken. I think it will be easier to get to that temp and hold it rather than keeping it low for a low & slow cook. Thanks for the welcome!
