Oh, and when you get to smoking, we love to see pics of your efforts!

So…what type of smoker are you using presently, or is that still up in the air?
I use a horizontal barrel with an offset side barrel for smoking. I don't know the technical name for it...maybe it doesn't have one. It is charcoal.
