Well I have been reading some of the older threads to learn as much as possible and then I took the 5 day e-course, purchased Jeff's rub and Q recipes, bought a 22.5 WSM to go with my 22.5 Webber grill, got some pecan wood, cherry wood, apple wood and wine barrel staves. My smoker should come in on the UPS run tonight so I will season that overnight and fire that bad boy up for a test run tomorrow. Does anyone have any advice for a first time smoker with the WSM? Or is it as good a smoker for a beginner as I have read? Just would like to say that this is the best cooking site on the net IMO and a big THANKS to Jeff and everyone who makes this thing happen.
