    I have years of grilling experience on my Weber Silver B and have long been talking to my wife about wanting a smoker. Well, I guess she decided to call me on it and gave me a smoker for Father's Day! I'm glad I found this forum as I need to learn the art of smoking, and quickly! :)

    I got an Old Smokey Electric which, from what I've read is great for novices, but not exactly preferred by the purists. I'm hoping there are a few members with experience with the Old Smokey!

    Looking forward to learn!
