I'm new to the forum and to smoking. Been grilling for years and contemplated getting into smoking, but kept talking myself out of it. I finally took the plunge and got a Weber 721001 Smokey Mountain 18.5. Tried some pork ribs and failed miserably the first time, but definitely learned a lot (and became addicted smoking!). This site has so much good information and a lot of great people, so decided to join and become a part of the community. I'm really looking forward to learning from all of you so hopefully someday I can teach my now 7 week old son how to smoke!
