    I just recently stumbled onto this site....I like to grill, been doing it several years on an inexpensive 2 burner grill(s)....I recently upgraded last summer to a midgrade grill....Broil King 4 Burner Barron with a rotisserie(first time with that and I use it a lot), I'm enjoying the new grill and one day I decided to add smoke to a rack of ribs I was doing....long story short the ribs were very good but the smoke flavor was faint.  So here I am....I'm looking for a decent to good electric or gasser smoker(not sure if there's a difference in flavor)....I have a few questions like window or solid door?.....one door or 2?.....one burner vs 2 burners with a gasser?..I'm looking for my best bang for my buck without breaking the bank.....I'm not opposed to simple modifications such as adding a seal to a door....anything that involves welding I will pass on.....lol....I'm sure I will have lots of questions moving forward and will find this forum filled with vast knowledge and advice.....Any help would be vastly appreciated for this newbie....Thanks in advance

    Hello and welcome, you got questions.

    You came to the right place to get answers.

    Best bet is to jump right out into the forums 

    and ask.

    You'll get a lot more response out there and a lot of 

    different viewpoints.

    Have a good time.

    Yes I've heard that....My daughter and son-in-law live near Killeen....Snowing and raining up here in Mich, so much for Spring....Thanks for the welcome....This is a great place that I can only take in small doses, too much and it becomes a little overwhelming.  So much info to absorb.
