I am not new to smoking meat I have just never had a smoker at the house.  I have been reading this fourm for a while and got some good ideas for a smoker build so I thought I  would join and post my build thread for aditional ideas and input being that I have never built somethingh like this before.  I learned to cook working in my (now) father in laws restraunt thru high school and tech collage.   He had a cookshack smoker and it was sweet.  (if you like set it and forget it) so that is the way I plan to start.  I will build a electric smoker and try to get some good meat from it and then get into charcol as I learn more. Thanks in advance for any help you may provide as I will need a lot.
