Long time gas griller, long ago charcoal griller, long time electric smoker (jerky and fish). I came across Jeff's "Smoking Meat" book, read it, decided to do the real thing! A Weber Smokey Mountain just arrived. Now I only have to figure out where to put it on the patio! Looking forward to learning a new art. Being an introvert, I probably won't post a whole lot, but be assured I'll be soaking up all of your posts, and gaining wisdom from your experiences!
