    Mornin from western NY, Bought a smoker about 3 weeks ago,   red stone, smokehouse ..(barrel type )  Never smoked anything or really eaten anyhing except smoked whitefish before, but had to admit it looked pretty tasty. So while cruisin through my local tractor supply , buying some chicken feed, I saw this smoker and figured for 200,  I am gonna try it. After seasoning the smoker I made some ribs,  By dumb luck, they came out really good...I'm hooked now.  Hardest thing was keeping the temp steady. And thanks to this site, I picked uip some great info, so thank you for all the folks who take the time to share.  Todays attempt.....chicken breast ( with the skin and bones)     No ...not one of mine [​IMG]      I will share some pics...when i figure it out.   I had 1 question though,  do most people stay with a charcoal / wood smoker  or do they switch to an electric ??   Thats probably like a " ford or chevy " question  and may start a war but i was curious what you guys that have been doing for some time do.  Thanks for a cool site.    Bob
