OK, I'm good at following directions, so per the request here I am checking in.
After WEEKS of research (this site especially, but also Youtube videos, Amazon, other places...) I pulled the trigger and my 22.5 Weber Smokey Mountain arrived today. Can't wait to start to use it.
I have been a lover of my Weber Genesis grill for 15 + years. About every main meal for parties, gatherings etc. and many many family meals come via my grill. So I am pretty good on the grill and making foods that way.
Thought it was finally time to step up to a smoker as well and working to make wonderful meals on that.
Other thing about me is I am very into Home Brewing beer as well. Something that I have enjoyed for a number of years.
Looking forward to spending a lot of time on here and learning about the WSM. I believe my first step is to get it set up and do a food free (or one with some scraps) to start the seasoning...
PS in Central Ohio, so anticipate some cold mornings with my new toy for a few months
