Hi, newb from Illinois, just got into smokin this past year. Messed around with chips in my grill, then decided I needed to get a smoker. I have a Weber Smoky Mtn now, and sometime in the future I'm sure I'll want something bigger, but this is good for now. I sell cookies for a living and for a hobby I homebrew. I figure what is better than smoked meats and good beer, oh and a good cigar!! :lol:
Cheers, Ted

Hello Ted and welcome to SMF!!! You might want to consider taking a look at the 5-day eCourse. Lot's of good information to help get you up to speed. I look forward to hearing about your adventures with your WSM. It is a cooker I think I would like to experiment with in the future.
