Hey gang, I'm a new guy from Nebraska. Been on here many times for tips/recipes/advice but just now made an account as I am getting more curious about serious smoking. Right now just using a Traeger for smoking/grilling but really looking to getting an offset.

Looking for recommendations on a good starter offset as well as tips/advice for a novice like myself.

Thanks, looking forward to being apart of the page!

Welcome from Ohio!! It will probably help with recommendations if you define a price range.

Welcome to the forums, happy to have ya join the fun. You may want to look at craigslist for a good used offset. Some of the less expensive offsets available in the box stores cause more headaches and frustration then their worth. I had a char-griller offset and had to babysit it the throughout the hole cooking process. Decided to pony up the same amount of money again and got a WSM 22, and never looked back. I know the WSM isn't an offset, but it's very easy to use and puts out great food.
