New Kid on the Block

newbie here;

Funds don't allow for a wsm or BGE, so I'm trying to smoke on my 57cm Weber.

Any tips, tricks, lessons? And where I can source wood blocks? All I can find is chips. JHB based

Thanks so much!

Chips are fine, I've used them for 5-6 hour smokes. Go to amazingribs and read everything on there.

amazing ribs was my first stop, along with smokeshack, smackyodaddy etc. I guess I need to experiment with different brands of charcoal, wood types and keep a journal of it.
I'll probably only be doing brisket and beef ribs as I keep kosher

Guys,

Dunno if they have been mentioned here but check out www.sabbqsmokers.co.za. They build authentic smokers and aren't to pricey. Going to order myself a Smoking Barrel next month.

Yes they did round about 10k for the Barrel. In my opinion it isn't a bad price as it looks like a solid constructed smoker.

Bump for this thread. I see Megamaster has a barrel "alpha Smoker" that retails for about R7300 on takealot currently. Saw one at builders today and the build quality looks good.
