Finally Signed In...

  1.  Hello there,

    I've been lurking these forum's for a long time and figured I was way past due to join the group so I can take full advantage of the wealth of info available here on SMF, ask a few noob questions here and there, and also chime in with my own input on topics I do have some knowledge of! (which may not be much at this point - lol) [​IMG]

    I have been "grilling" for many year's (most recently on my fairly new Genesis S.E. EP330 gas Weber, although I do also use a coal burning Weber 22" 1-Touch Gold as well), but I am a complete virgin when it come's to cooking with a SMOKER... I actually don't even own my first smoker (yet)... but I think I have it narrowed down to the obvious choice (being that I am a Weber fan already) the 22.5" Smokey Mountain!

    I keep reading about the MES-40's too, which also seem very popular, although It look's like the newer Gen2's are having a handful of issue's... and the Gen1's are becoming difficult to find... Hmmmm...

    Hard to find any genuine complaints regarding the trusty 'ol WSM's though, so that is likely the path I will stumble down as I learn this fine art of smoking meat's [​IMG]

    Hello Squatch, and welcome to the Forums!  Glad you joined us.  This is a great place to share ideas on our favorite pastimes...smoking and grilling great food!  There are lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here who really enjoy helping one another.  Any time you need help, just ask and you'll get plenty!  Both of the smokers you mentioned are great rigs.  I used to own an MES40 myself and really liked it alot.  And everyone who owns a WSM raves about them.  I don't think you could go wrong with either choice...mostly depends on what you want.

  7. Thank's guy's!

    If I had the $$ to spare I'd get one of each! ... Going to have to choose one or the other for now though...
