Hey all! Going to be picking up my very first smoker tonight. I've always enjoyed the great taste of well cooked food and have gone wayyyy out of my area to get some. Now with some time I'm hoping to be able to get the same or better at home. Looking forward to learning everything I can about smoking.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I Just got the smoker all put together. I ended up buying a Brinkman vertical electric smoker. Seemed like a good choice for starting out. I'm going to get everything organized tomorrow (rubs and such) and give a try at some spare ribs and wings this weekend.
