My first outdoor cooking device would have been an 18.5" OTS that I bought after buying my house. Not sure what happened to it, but I don't have it anymore.
My first smoker was a Brinkman Cimmaron offset that I still have and will always have. My dad gave it to me for Christmas in 98 I think.
From there my collection has exploded. I have more grills and smokers than I could ever realistically cook on.
