After reading forums, researching and reviews I got my first smoker. Weber Smokey Mountain 18in. I'm looking forward to learning all I can about smoking and the many great meals to come. I already have Apple, Plum and Pear wood seasoning for use. I used my BBQ grill the last few months and did a good briskett, a Ribb Roast and a few chickens but it was very tough and not smoked sealed at all. I feel this smoker can only make it better and easier.
