I just recently stumbled upon this website/forum by accident while searching for a new smoker. That was a couple of weeks ago. I literally read hundreds of pages on this site and it seems there is a real community here. So I decided to join.
I have been smoking/grilling on a Weber gas grill, doing OK, but smoking on it is really becoming a chore. I live in a very windy area, close to the water without any large trees slowing the wind. It's very difficult to maintain a proper smoking temperature due to that. The wind just blows the flame out when it's set at the min. I can make it work and have smoked some real tasty stuff, but maintaining the flame is worse than with charcoal. The BBQ is a great grill however and it's easy to sear steaks or make pizza at 750*. I'm looking at the better electrics. They would make a great combo in the backyard. Which i gotta fix before I can put another piece of "junk" there. (so says the wife). I'm hoping by middle of summer I can go ahead and get a dedicated smoker....
Can't wait so I can make some ribs more often. They are my 4 yr old's favorite. he calls them bones. "Make some bones daddy"!
In the meantime I'm really enjoying reading some of the conversations on this forum. Love the recipe ideas too.
Thanks a bunch! This seems like a real awesome place.
oh and before anyone calls this thread worthless :
