From Colorado here. I found this website, and it looks like a great tool to use to learn smoking. I have used a neighbors smoker a few times, and have grown fond of it. Now I am looking to purchase one of my own. There are so many out there, I am alittle confused on what to get. Any info you can give a new guy would be great. I am thinking of going the way of charcoal or wood. Do you think something like propane, or electric would be better for the new guy? Which one would you suggest? Cost is definately a problem for me. Can break the bank unfortunately. Thanks all, this site has alot of great info.
