Newbie with first drum smoker

Hello everyone. I'm new to smoking and BBQ. I own a Weber Kettle Grill and have used it to do whole turkeys, chickens, and everything else that you grill. But over the 4th of July I found a friendly Pork In The Park Rib cooking competition. I walked around that park all day long talking to all the different people competing for the best ribs award and now I'm hooked on trying to smoke and cook my own ribs and brisket and everything else you can smoke. Found this forum and I built a drum smoker. This is a picture of it with a fire in it to season the inside. Looking forward to learning a lot from here. Forgot to mention i live in northern Mi.
