Just wanted to do the customary introductions here. I just started on my Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker this past weekend. I tried a couple of times to make ribs to my liking on my Jenn-air grill and found I couldn't do it just right, and while I still love my stainless steel propane grill, I thought I needed to go to charcoal for my BBQ. My dad has the GOSM and I thought I'd do something a little different so we could compare and contrast. I started off easy with a couple of split chickens which I thought turned out pretty good, didn't do alot of fire control just wanted to get the first one under my belt. I've already found alot of useful info here and am well on my way into the state of obsession.
