    Hi everyone, A quick little intro here. I am in the market for a smoker and found this forum to be the best place to start. I have been thinking about a propane smoker, but am starting to lean towards a charcoal smoker with the side firebox. It may be a bit tougher in the beginning to control the heat, but the charcoal smoker looks more versatile, and fun !!

    I have been a gas grill user for the past 20 years, and just recently bought a Weber kettle charcoal grill, and have been enjoying that. I am really looking forward to slow cooking some brisket and ribs in a slow cooker/smoker now !!

    Hmmm, the more I think about it, I must me addicted to smoke. I love cigars and fly high power rockets, which coincidentally, both smoke !! [​IMG]

    Anyways, I'll let you know what I end up buying, and hope to share some experiences and pix someday soon.

    Later, Kurt T.

    Welcome to the forum. You will find many friendly folks here using everything from electric to wood burning---manufactured to homemade so don't be afraid to ask questions. One caution....whatever you choose this stuff is addicting.
