Welcome aboard Patriot,

Just to let you know, this can become highly addictive. I started out in July with a Vertical Watt burner and have since added an ECB (El Cheapo Brinkman) to the collection. This is a great place to learn and share your success-QVIEW !!! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gifand the occasional failure.

What type of smoker ?

What type of smoker depends on how much your wallet can handle? how many you plan to cook for? there is a smoker for everyone's budget.

Hey patriots..welcome to the forum. First of all, I am up here in the Boston area too. I have found Cowboy lump charcoal at Lowe's pretty routinely. Not the best but it works fine. I use oak and cherry in a vertical smoker. Now, you should keep it simple. It is important to keep the cook chamber temp as steady as possible. I heat with the lump and use small logs of oak or cherry for flavor. You don't want a lot of smoke so feed the wood in slowly. I have learned that it is super important to monitor the meat temp as well. For years I couldn't get tender, fall-apart brisket, then learned to get the internal temp up and that is the magic. Be patient with it. I don't baste during the cooking either, but then I am originally from Texas. I wish you good luck and enjoy the process, smokin' is loads of fun.
