My friends joke the Home Brewing beer is the gateway drug to smoking. That idea along with my father smoking fish in a Little Chief while I was growing ip (northern Wisconsin) led me to the impulse purchase of a Little Chief at a flea market last weekend. It was never used and the price was right - $2. I know it's not the best, but hopefully after a few successful tries I will graduate to a better smoker.
I am looking forward to learning more about this hobby and can't wait to have my smoker going while brewing a new batch of beer.
