View Full Version : Forgive me, Hank Hill...

09-25-2012, 11:24 PM
After a couple of decades of propane and propane accesories, I bought a Weber One-Touch Gold.

The Maverick ET-732 arrived late last week, and the Smokenator 1000 and Hovergrill is in the hands of the USPS at the moment.

I stand on the brink of Brethernship.

Soon, I hope I can report that I have indeed Smoked a Fatty :thumb:

And I hope I can provide all the pr0n of Bacon-Wrapped goodness that goes with the territory.

Chips or Chunks, Apple, Hickory, Mesquite...

The mind boggles... http://ourdollcommunity.com/forum/chat/img/emoticons/drool.gif

Thanks everyone for all the information here.

God d@*# it, bobby.

Before long you'll be thinking to yourself, "boy, I NEED a performer", then wsm, then stickburner. It's a disease.

You will be one happy guy very soon. I L O V E my Weber and the Smokenator is a great start, though I bet you'll be eyeballing either a Cajun Bandit Upgrade or a used WSM in the not too distant future.

Keep in mind HH was a propane salesman, not a bbq guy. Oh, and I hear he lived in Texas.

Welcome and have fun!
I've been smoking/q'ing on a kettle for over a year and they work great. I had considered getting a smokenator, too, but have ended up containing the coals as the Smokenator does with fire bricks instead, and often use a small water pan to stabilize temps.
Here's a thread with other great set ups for using the kettle low'n'slow.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. :-D

I'm heading out to assemble the kettle.

I scored a Weber chimney (with the instuctions still attached ) at a flea market this summer for $3.

Rain in the forecaast for this weekend, So maybe a trip to Costco is in order.
