    Hello and Saludos all,

    My name is Jess and I am a smoker-holic.  That is to say, I ~love~ smoking on my WSM.  Pork ribs, chicken parts, mesquite, hickory, etc.  Best Christmas gift to myself in a loooong time. 

    Lookin' forward to learning /sharing more about smokin' vittles on my WSM.

    I own the medium-sized WSM = Weber Smoky Mountain smoker. (This is it, on SMF.)

    I am near Chicago, USA.

    Pictures will come later.

    Have had good luck smoking with garden-variety Kingsford(tm)  briquets... hickory wood chunks procured from Cabela's, -OR- mesquite charcoal from the Mexican grocery stores... "Ell Gallito"(tm) brand, I think.

    I'll be searching the archives for smoking with other woods like oak. I have access to some oak wood, for next to nothing.

    Today, however, the smoker must wait.  I am off to PierogiFest. Na zdrowie. Vivat!

    I love oak. It has a great mild smoke flavor and it's hard to get the meat too smoky. Something you have to be careful with with mesquite. And it smells great when it's smoking.
