Hi all - I'm looking to buy a smoker soon and found this forum. I live in Maryland now, but have also lived in Tennesee and Texas. I'm quite a capable home cook, but have been disappointed by my ribs on the grill. I want them to be perfect, and I think a smoker is the next step. I'm a bit in "paralysis by analysis" mode as I contemplate all the different smoker types and models. There's tons of great info here, but its somewhat overwhelming. Any advice is very welcome. I don't have a huge amount of outdoor space, so I don't want something huge. I'm currently leaning towards the WSM, but yesterday I was thinking propane... I'm making pulled pork next weekend (always comes out great just using indirect and a smoke box on my grill), but perhaps if I have a new smoker by then I'll do a side-by-side to compare.
