Thank you for your welcome! I've been 'visiting' this site for awhile since I learned I was getting a smoker and my family is looking for to tasting real bbq - not just grilled food. Yum!

Greetings and welcome from Hickory, NC! I'm also a rather new owner of the WSM 18.5 model. I have smoked on it several times this month and I'm looking forward to a lot more! It's a great smoker and easy to work with... I think you will be quite happy with it!

I'm still trying to decide what to cook for my first attempt this coming weekend... Would chicken be too difficult? I don't want to have my first cook be a fail, but I'm feeling real positive, but I definitely don't want to make a rookie mistake. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to our crazy little club house!

A good choice for the first cook is a couple or three fatties. It's kinda understood that cooking one fatty just isn't done :rolleyes:.

Welcome. Fatties or MOINKS are a great way to start.

Welcome Chicken is very forgiving, would be a good start. A bbq'er never fails, just adapts to change in plans. Good Luck
