This is an easy one for me. I just got started a month or so ago. I have always loved pulled pork and a neighbor had this really nice smoker. In talking to him earlier this summer, he told us he was moving. Somehow the smoker came up in conversation and he said he wasn't moving it again as it was too heavy and he just didn't use it enough. My wife immediately said "we will take it". We didn't even ask the price but it turned out to be a steal of a deal. You can see it in my avatar. Only paid $300 for it
Once I found out we were getting it, I got online and found this site pretty quick and started reading. Soon as i dragged it(literally) across the yard to my house, I fired it up and have done about 7 smokes in about the same amount of weeks. Nahhh...I'm not hooked. As others have said, I can quit any time I want, I just don't want to.
