Hello from sunny and warm Toledo Ohio! (OK thats a joke there snow outside today) Im about to venture into the realm of smoking. The good kind, meat! Delicious tasty baby back ribs, chicken, pork, hams... I just love a good tasty smoked meat. I havent bought any equipment yet. I am trying to figure out whats worth the money and more importantly- what isnt. Im looking at a vertical electric smoker or gas and adding a Smoke Daddy 8" to it (or a SmokeMiester). I live in a second story apartment with a covered porch. So whatever I do I will need to be able to vent the smoke via pipe. This is also another reason I dont want to do charcoal. I do have a nice CharBroil commercial series 3 burner (cast) grill. Works OK, but not enough smoke flavor. I will be doing a ton of lurking.
