I've been smoking in a dedicated smoker for about 9 months now. Before that, I did the best I could with my 10 year old Weber Silver 2 burner propane grill with a chip box. I built my own flower pot electric smoker. That has served me well but I want better control and more capacity. I'm flirting with either building a larger electric with better controls or buying a ceramic grill/smoker. I'm leaning toward a Vision Kamado. At $600 and the ability to sear a steak at 700 deg plus, I'm finding it hard to pass on. I'm damn proud of my BB ribs, can do a good PP Butt, and have started doing chicken. Hope to take on brisket and St. Louis Ribs soon. After lurking around this site, I'm thinking about more. Good to be here.
