Hey welcome on over here. If thats an offset many of us cut our teeth on a self same gizmo. Best tip I got is plan to use charcoal for heat (start with 3 lbs.) and some chunks or small log to make smoke. Keep the under side of the fire grate cleaned of dead ashes or the heat production will drop cause the fire cant get no air. Keep the firebox door standing ajar a litte. Its hard for those small pits to breathe..got to keep the intakes drawing. If the heat goes nuts on the high side open the cookchamber door till things calm back down a bit. Keep us posted on your adventures.

A couple of split chickens or a Boston Butt works good to break in a new pit.

Welcome. I highly recommend starting with a pork butt.
