Hello from So Cal

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My name is Mike and I finally took the plunge into the wonderful world of owning a smoker,
I've been lurking for awhile doing my research on different smokers... I chose the 18.5" Weber smokey mountain... I bought it on Sat and fired it right up and smoked up some Bacon Candy... It was fantastic,
Turned right around and did a Tri Tip, also fantastic, then last night I did a whole beer butt chicken, was the best tasting whole chicken I've ever had..
So far I'm very very happy with the WSM.. Hold the heat for a long time and I'm able to control the heat really well..
Looking forward to trying new rubs, meats and techniques.....

Thanks Gary, Have to honest with ya, I was super nervous about each cook session!!! Drove me nuts not to pop the lid off and take a peek at it... With three different meats in the smoker now I've calmed down a bit and learned to trust the WSM and my thermometer... Although the stock thermo in the lid isn't very accurate and it's a bit sticky!!!! I'm thinking about upgrading to a Maverick et-732
