Hi my name is Casey. I'm 29 and love my wife and 6 (almost 7) year old daughter. I just started trying to smoke anything on the grill, a few weekends ago I smoked some chickens with Dr. Pepper cans. They turned out really good for my first time trying it. I had problems keeping the temp in the grill hot enough but I have done some research and think I figured my problem out. I have a charcoal grill with a smoke box on the side right now. I told my wife I want a propane fueled smoker but she said that she doesn't like the taste from a propane smoker. Which one would any of you suggest? I've been doing research on building a smoker versus buying one and as far as I see if I were to eventually start cooking in competitions I would build one since I'm a welder but for backyard smoking it would be better to just go buy one. Let me know what y'alls thoughts are on this.
