We got a Brinkmann All-in-One smoker in November and immediately smoked a turkey. Yum! Tomorrow I'm doing oysters, pork loin and brisket. We were going to do a duck but decided to just roast the duck instead of smoking it. In preparation I ordered a lot of wood chunks from Fruita Wood in Fruita CO. I ordered on Tuesday and UPS delivered the wood on Thursday. I have 100lbs of apple, hickory, post oak, maple, peach, cherry I'll let you know how it all turns out!
We live at 9200' elevation in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Near Black Hawk, if you know the area. We live in the wilderness with nothing but a million acres of National Forest and the Continental Divide as our back yard. We have a great '94 Jeep rigged for trekking....but mostly we just prowl the trails in the back yard.
A few weeks ago I realized we had a lot of points on a credit card so we bought our smoker, a Brinkman all-in-one, with those points. Plus a vacuum cleaner and a counter top ice cream maker. ;-)
We roasted a chicken in the Brinkmann the other day...it was fantastic. I plan to have the smoker going for about 12 hours tomorrow. What a feast we'll have!

The oysters came out great but too salty for our tastes. The flavor and smoke are awesome. Soaking over night in oil will mellow them some so I'm hoping some of the saltiness dissipates.
There is a 6lb brisket in the smoke now. I'm using texas post oak. I'll finish with some peach wood.
Later, a 7lb pork loin is going to be hit with maple and applewood.
