Hello from Waco, Tx

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, I am Terry from Waco. I recently had bariatric weight loss surgery and the first rule after this surgery is start every meal with protein, protein, protein! So I am buying a smoker and getting into smoking my own foods. I have not yet bought a smoker, but I am leaning toward a gas smoker. I was really interested in the pellet smokers, then the electric smokers, but ultimately I am starting to think a gas smoker just has fewer elements to fail than the other types. I am not very handy, so I value simplicity.

My hope is to learn a lot from you guys prior to buying a smoker. Plus I hope to get some good instructions for cooking from you all. Thanks, Terry.
