    Like most of you here, I discover this forum on the web, been reading for days about smoking meats. Especially sausages, I can say I am really looking forward to do it oneday. For now, I need to read some more with regards to food safety and what kind of smoker to buy, any recommendation will be greatly appreciated. My experience is limited to grilling ang roasting a whole pork. :biggrin:

    As far as what smoker to buy, you need to figure out if you want, electric ( very easy to use ), propane ( easy to use too ), charcoal ( a little more work, but IMHO better flavor ), or a pure wood burner ( more work, but probably the best flavor ). You will soon find that there are favorites in each of these categories.

    Welcome, you will find this forum very useful and the members extremely helpful.  I joined a couple months ago, being new to true BBQ also.  I have learned a lot by reading through the forums and posts by the experienced members.  Good luck,
