Hello everyone! Name is Brian... I'm 32, from Garland, TX... I love to grill, am fairly good at it, and within the past couple years have REALLY wanted to learn how to smoke. I absolutely LOVE bbq, and am going to try my hand in the smokin aspect of things. I am currently in the market for a decent smoker, and thought I had my hands on a NB Bandera yesterday for $50, but alas... I was 10 mins too late! (story of my life... LOL). I have spent the last 3-4 months researching the $200-$400 range, and would love any and all input on what to look for and where.

Well... glad to be here and I hope to learn a LOT!

Let me be the first to welcome you to the addiction... Remember, there is no 12 step program for us!

Just as a note, you may want to look at the UDS Thread... Cheap way to get started with some great Que!

Dang it! He beat me to it! Weber Smoky Mountain is an excellent choice in that price range. If you want to check out WSMs, Grill Doctor used to have good prices on them but haven't been there in years (Coit & Spring Valley in north Dallas) or a lot of folks have gotten good prices/free shipping on Amazon.com.
