I'm with Trav on the avatar ...... gotta have a sense of humour
. I'm on an acreage so we have anything from 8 to 15 barn cats at any one time, depending on the time of year. Also have two indoor cats, oh yeah and two labs.
As for a smoker i'm a charcoal user, never used propane so can't really recommend one. Wally world is a good place to look. If you want to spend a little more, check out Scheels at Coralville.
Whatever you get expect to get hooked on it.
