Checking in from Lynnwood Washington. I’ve been an avid cook and griller all my life but new to smoking and been hovering around the SMF site for a month or so. Finally decided on purchasing a Camp Chef 18 inch smoker vault. It seems a great starter setup to learn on and portable enough to drag along on travel trailer camping trips. We do 25-35 nights a year camping and the little vault will be filling in another roles as a camping oven for breads and casseroles. I got my wood and rub ready. The vault is due to arrive Wednesday when right after assembly I'll be breaking it in with a 5 pound pork butt. This is a great site for ideas on recipes and tips, already learned a lot and feeling eager to jump in to it.
