Just dropping in to introduce myself. I live in upstate SC and have been smoking for about 5 months on a WSM. So far I've done beer butt chickens, bourbon brined chicken, wings, boston butts, spare ribs, beef short ribs, shredded beef, meatloaf, trout, turkey breast and honey, which I used to make ice cream. I've been smoking something different each weekend and plan on doing a standing rib roast here soon. I've also used a friends homemade offset smoker to do 2 9 lb butts and 6 beer butt chickens, with great success. Hopefully someday, I'll have one too.
