Great thread guys.
My biggest mistake was waiting too farking long to get a smoker. I shouldve made the jump to a smoker years ago.
And once I got mine I was trying to make sure that I had everything perfect before I did my first smoke. I bet I put it off for 2 weeks. Finally after Troutman threatened to come down here and kick my ass did I give it a go and you know what? It came out great! Pork Butt that is.
Jump in and learn from your mistakes. Have fun.
