I got bit by the BBQ bug after watching videos constantly posted on Facebook by a friend who has a Big Green Egg. I whined and begged for a BGE but we decided we couldn't justify the $$$ since we have a quality grill that we use all the time and are very happy with. So we got ourselves a very cool-looking smoker - a Brinkmann vertical smoker w/indirect heat (Trail Master Limited edition) and we are on our way. We've tried it three times and get a little better each time, but definitely need some advice to figure stuff out.
Can I just say this is much harder than it looks!
