    Okay, I want to show of hands for all you folks who've been bitten by the same bug as I have.  Since I got my smoker, here's what I've noticed. As I drive down the street I spy every branch or twig that is laying on the ground and wonder if I can use that in my smoker.  I want to gather them all up like some reality show hoarder and take them back to my lair.  Before the smoker - BST in my timeline - I knew there were trees out there, but I didn't really pay much attention to them. Now, it's become an obsession.

    I just wish I hadn't slept through all those classes in high school so I could actually identify some of these trees [​IMG].

    My wife is starting to question my sanity. When neighbors are trimming their trees, they look up and see me standing there with a somewhat crazy look in my eye, a little like a dog begging for a Milk Bone.I can't help myself.

    Now, when I do smoke something using this found wood, like last Sunday when I smoked some spares using oak that I found on the back of my property and plum from the neighbors tree, all is forgiven. Sweet obsession.
