I just recently found this site and have been very impressed. I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO and in my opinion, am surrounded by the best BBQ in the world. I understand that some of you will think I'm crazy so we'll just have to agree to disagree on this one. I am 32 years old and have been grilling for as long as I can remember but have only been smoking meat for the past couple of years. I bought a propane vertical smoker about a year ago and have had pretty good luck with it but it is nothing like the wood burning one that a friend of mine has. In the next few months I have decided to construct my first real competition smoker. I want to use something like a 500 gallon propane tank but I am looking for something with a larger diameter so if you have any suggestions I welcome them. I am wanting to attach it to a trailer so it is mobile and I am wanting a 3 or 4 shelf rotisserie. I am looking for any ideas that you can offer and I have been and will be looking at the forum pages. Should I make it an RF smoker or direct smoke? I still don't have a good understanding on the pros and cons of the RF.
Well thanks for any input you guys can offer and I look forward to being an active member of this site.
