Greeatings. I live in Michigan, Flint area. I just bought my weber smokey mountain 18.5" and am very excited to start using it. I'm fairly proficient with the charcoal grill so I think this should go well for me. I'm mostly interested in smoking pork, poultry, and fish, but I might get into brisket and other things as well. Not sure yet! I make pretty mean pulled pork so I'm thinking that doing it on a smoker will really take it to the next level.
