Well, I'm new to smoking. I live in Utah. I got a WSM in Dec and my wife absolutely hates the taste of charcoal smoked meats. (Maybe I was doing something wrong, who knows!) So I decided to switch over to a pellet grill. I got a Camp Chef 36" smoker pro last night. Not sure if it's the best, but I imagine it will suite me just fine for now. I plan on smoking a couple Boston butts tomorrow. Now I just have to figure out all the tricks to the trade of pellet smoking!
