Hey Everyone,

A complete newbie to smoking, actually just starting down the path to my research to even where to begin and was directed to this site by "Uncle Google". Don't own a smoker yet but am doing my due diligence before I go out and look at plunking my "funny-coloured" money down on something!

I think so far I am leaning towards an electric smoker but with the amount of information out there, it almost seems over-whelming! But I figure I settle into a forum like this, soak up as much info as possible and then make a decision and move along down my path to purchasing my first smoker!

So howdy to everyone and look forward to learning as much as I can! I will have questions, so please bear with me, eh...lol.

Welcome CN!

Happy you joined our group.  You are correct in there are many choices for a smoker.  I own a Masterbuilt electric because its very easy to use. But also have a charcoal / wood burner when I want something to fuss with. You might start off in our product review section.  Use our search button for even more info.  Good luck and welcome!  Brian
