have no experience, no equipment, and NO SCREW-UPS... but that will change. Considering building something, but I'd like whatever I build to be somewhat idiot-proof. I'm an insurance adjusters nightmare, and my wife is tiring of phoning 911. Considering buying something, like one of those Bradley digital, or a Great Outdoors Smoky Mountain. Would like to smoke my own sausage, bacon, hams, and the thanksgiving turkey. We get 18# turkeys for large gathering. Welcome all advice.
