G'day knowledgeable BBQ goers,

I've been thinking of breaking into the offset smoking scene for quite a while however I currently have a very limited knowledge of the practice.

I'm looking to build my understanding was wondering as to where someone begins and what BBQ is a good choice to learn on before investing in something more up market?

All depends on how big you want your smoker to be and how much do you want to spend.

If you're a complete newb that's never smoked before, I'd go the cheapest and easiest option to start, a second hand Weber Kettle. Pick one up of ebay or gumtree, usually under $50. You can use it to low and slow, roast and grill with a few different configurations. And then once you've got the hang of that I'd move onto the offset.

I live in Queensland and am looking for something under $1000. I have experience with roasting, grilling and even drying meat with coals and gas however I have had no exposure with the offset devices. I guess I'm just wondering where I should start with offset smokers?

Ahh, okay. I'm in Melbourne and would have something to suit.
But heed Jars advice. A kettle is an excellent starting point.

an offset will frustrate the hell out of you if you arent good with tending fires and meat at the same time then it wont be very enjoyable. i sold my first offset for a pellet smoker now selling the pellet smoker for an offset haha
