Hello everyone I'm new here and first time smoker. After I moved to.the south and seen all my friends with smokers I figured I would join the crowd. I've ate a lot of their smoked food and was never to impressed with it. Never really seemed to have the good flavor. I'm looking for either a propane or wood smoker. I'm leaning towards wood over the propane because all my friends have propane and like I said above, I don't taste the flavor. But I'm trying to keep an open mind so I'm open to suggestions. I'm not gonna be cooking for party's but I will be for the family. Six people at the most I'd like to stay around 300 bucks but I'd pay more if it was worth it. I've looked at a bunch of threads and reviews but I figured I'd get feedback from this site. Let me know what you guys think.
