Call me Milo. I live in the eastern edge of Washington state. I use my webber grill often and decided it was time to get into smoking. My only experience smoking up to this point was that I worked in a restaurant named Thee Pitts Again in AZ for about 6 months, quite a few years ago. My family loves to fish and hunt we just figured it was the next logical step. I thought of buying a smoker until the wife said to me "Why don't you just build one I bet you could." Now with that kind of trust and backing I had no option but to accept her challenge. While I was building said smoker I found this forum and have found so much useful information, Thank you. Since I started my build even smoked two blocks of cheese, 2 different attempts. Now my smoker is ready for use this weekend. Someone please tell me the easiest thing to smoke first, I was thinking of chicken quarters... You guys rock!
