My first smoker was one of the original New Braunfels Silver Smokers (prior to Char Broil buy out), purchased at Home Depot (most stores had just 2 units back then) and my first cook was naturally a briisket that alas and alack turned out to be about as good as shoe leather, edible but barely. Still have the smoker, now used as a real good charcoal grill.
