Well, I've been lurking for months now in the shadows. I did some smoking years ago on a small barrel type charcoal smoker until the bottom rotted out. Than did a little smoking on the gas grill. I really enjoy cooking outdoors and decided it's time to get back to smoking again. After almost a year of looking and borrowing different smokers, I bought a Cabelas SS 48" propane vertical smoker yesterday. It has 1200 sq. in. of cooking area. Looks like this site has alot of experienced smokers and I'm here to learn. Happy New Year Everyone!

Welcome to SMF. Sounds like you like to break things. Bet the bottom won't rot out of this one.

Well Cheech.........I was using my gas grill as a smoker. Kind of a pain, but it can be done. :(
Right now, I'm in the game room putting this Cabela's unit together.
How many of you season a new smoker like the instruction book suggests? I never seasoned my old barrel smoker........or I'm getting so old I don't remember. :roll:
Thanks for the welcome fellas, y'all seem so nice and really smok'n savy.
