Thread Starter 

Hello to all... I'm new to this site and thought I'd introduce myself.  I'm Jesse, live in Baton Rouge, LA, a retired mechanical engineer from the Petro-Chemical industry.  Just turned 68 today and the family got me a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker for my birthday.  I did however, drop several hints that the WSM would make a nice gift.  I also have a very old New Brunsfield vertical smoker with a horz. fire box/grill attached.  I've tried my hand at smoking some meats and salmon in the NB smoker with limited success.  It was very hard to maintain a constant cooking temperature.  I have grilled with The Weber charcoal grills now for over 50 years (I think I'm on my 4th Weber grill so far).  I have never enjoyed the flavor of food cooked on the gas grills, so I've always stayed with charcoal. 

 

So now I've got the WSM vertical smoker, and so far I am very, very pleased with it.  I intend to use it for smaller size meals, ie, a couple chickens, rack of ribs (pork), a turkey, or a roast or two.  Nothing too big or large volume.

 

I frequently look at this site for advise and information, and have enjoyed the commentary.
