Hey there folks, I'm brand spankin new to the smoking world and don't have much in the way of gear...then again I don't have much room for more than I already have. I've got a good ol' weber bbq x 2 and then my lil homemade smoker... a couple azelia pots, a hot plate, a smokey joe grate, three bricks and a pie plate. i've done pork butt in it already and it works phenominally...espicially compared to other ceramic smokers and their costs. As far as actual smoking is concerned, i'm just getting started. well that's about all I have for now.
