Welcome Seth, grab a cold one, and pull up a chair, The smoker meeting starts on the hour around here. As long as you enjoy eating good Que, being a smoker is not a problem. Soon you family and friends, will keep asking you....."When are you going to make anymore ribs? Did you do a brisket last weekend? Got any leftovers?" Or my favorite, I had a neighbor who would just bring a few cold beers over, and sit down in achair i keep near the smoker. He would wait till I got home, and be ready to hang with me, while I got the fire going. Of couse, he was good for samples and tasting. I am sad he moved away, now I have to buy my own beer and drink alone when I cook.
