    I am a newbie to smoking . I'm still trying to decide which smoker to buy and will likely just watch and learn from all of you.

    Hello Brian, plenty of great advise here at the SMF. Read around and it might help you decide on a smoker. I think everyone here has bought one smoker and then upgraded/changed throughout theire smokin' times. Part of the learning curve.

    I am going to use charcoal and I want to smoke ribs,briskets,and poultry. Nothing huge but maybe for 6-8 people. I was looking at a small Brinkman.
    Thoughts?

    BigArm- I'm headed to Montana in October. I love it out there.

    Thanks for time.

    Brian
