  1. I am a total newbie at smoking. I don't even have a smoker yet. Well ok I have a little stovetop one that kicks but for potatoes and fish, but nothing bigger.

    I'm hoping to hunt one down this weekend though.

    Laura, Welcome the SMF. You have come to the right place to decide on what to buy. Read up and ask questions. Think about things like fuel source, size, budget, what you would like to smoke...

    Welcome to the SMF, read around the forums and you'll get through the learning curve real quick.
     
  12. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I have learned a bunch already. Also last night I scored a ECB for free off of a recycling website. So I now have a smoker.

    Thats great congrats on the smoker now its time to put it to work and reap the rewards. Whats the first smoke gonna be?
     
  14. Well I have a bunch of breakfast sausage I made a while back in the freezer, so maybe I'll do a fattie. Otherwise probably pork butt.

    Welcome.... Nice find on a free smoker. Now you wont feel bad after two or three smokes when you start thinking you need something bigger. First it's a fatty or a butt. Then it's a fatty and a butt and ABT's. Then it's a fatty for you, and two or three butts for friends and ABT's. And so on and so on...

    It's a lot of fun though...
