Hi guys and gals, I hail from the Orlando area....Go Canes!!! My wife is buying me a WSM 14.5 so i'm very excited about learning how to smoke. I've already watched a ton of videos and done a lot of research and the best bang for your buck to me was the WSM. I'm a first time smoker so i think the 14.5 will serve me properly for now.... I'm in I.T. and usually spend my spare time running my computer company, fixing and building new PCs/servers or setting up my rack, so this is definitely a change of pace, but a much needed one. I will be picking your brains and asking a million questions so i hope that's ok. My plan is to start off smoking a whole chicken and a rack of ribs, then soon after graduate up to brisket and Boston butt. Looking forward to talking to you folks. P.S. Send some of that cold weather down here!!!
