I caught the smoking bug earlier this fall/late summer and bought the 18.5" WSM.

I've now got 5 smokes in of Chicken wings, 2 smokes in of Beer Can Chicken, and 2 smokes in Pork Ribs.

I just love it.

Applewood is my wood of choice so far. But I've bought Pecan, Mesquite, Hickory, and Cherry wood.

I've modded the WSM a bit, added lower grate handles on, and a second top rack for more wings space.

I haven't done a brisket or a Pork butt yet, I need a good leave in thermometer first, probably the 732.

But, boy is this just so much fun.

Excited to join this community.

All those woods are great I really like Apple or Peach on chicken. I use Pecan quite a bit because I have it available. WE have some Hickory that is about seasoned up. Mesquite is good but you have to be careful a little goes a long way.
