I'm a novice smoker and have been reading the forum and Jeff's site for a few weeks now. I started with an ECB, but had a hard time getting the temp up over 200. I successfully smoked a butt, with the help of my oven, and it turned out pretty good but not quite the experience I was looking for. I didn't want to mess with modding the ECB so I decided to get a WSM 22.5. It arrived last night and I'm looking forward to firing it up over the Holiday.
I ordered Jeff's sauce and rub recipes and I've had a chance to try the sauce - delicious! Looking forward to testing out the rub.
