Well I purchased a model 20070910 today online which I believe is the Gen I. I am super excited. I wasn't going to buy one now but with football season coming up I am going to start a smoking tradition of something for each colts game. I was on the fence and last night I grilled a bunch of chicken legs on the weber with some apple wood chunks. I was listening to my wife and in-laws just loving cheap old chicken legs that were cooked for an hour and decided man this stuff just tastes too good. I have to make some quality ribs and pulled pork. Thanks for all the advice. I am going to try a few smokes with chips before I invest in the pellet tray.
