New to the forum but not new to smoking.  Live in Olathe, used to use an old Cookshack (one of the first ones, way before FEC) but sold it to a buddy of mine who was getting into smoking.

Currently using an old Brinkman Cimarron with a 3 digit serial number, 1/4" plate steel, not a single bolt, even the legs and shelf were welded on at the factory! Welded in a baffle plate, and 3 tuning plates, and it is a smoking machine. Turns out the best pork butt and brisket point I have ever tasted (my two favorite cuts to smoke)  No need to ever upgrade.  Got the smoker free from the folks next door who were throwing it away.  I use Royal Oak USA hardwood lump from the WalMart down the street, I buy the big bag for $12-15.  Use hickory for my pork butts and post oak for my points.

Happy, happy, happy!

Hello From our Capitol City....Topeka !   I have a Master Forge Electric Smoker, A CharGriller Duo (modified, by removing the Gas Side and replaced with counter Top, and adding the firebox) I love the simplicity of the electric smoker but you cant beat the flavor of a stick burner.  I seriously thinking on buying the "Old Country, Over and Under" smoker from Academy Sports.  I have been out there a couple times and have looked at the Pecos and the o&u and im impressed with the thicker gage used for the price.  my Chargriller is a real pain keeping temps up.   I just wanted to say Hi to all the fellow "Smoke Lovers"

Hey everyone, I'm Mike from Topeka. Pretty cool to see a few Kansans on here. I've got an offset Chargriller charcoal with a few simple mods and a 40" MES. Nothing better than spending a day with a 6 pack next to the smoker!
