    Been grilling with webers for years and started slow smoking 3-4 years ago. Started with a barrel style with a side box but ended up using it mostly for grilling because I had trouble with uneven heat.

    A friend of mine gave me a Char Broil gas vertical smoker and I had pretty good luck doing pork shoulders. The thing I didn't like was you had to load it from the top. There are 2 racks and the bottom rack got much hotter than the top so I had to rotate the meat . Also if it was windy at all the flame would blow out.

    Picked up a new Master Craft electric smoker and I doing my 1st pork shoulder as I type. I'll find out in a couple of hours how it turns out.

    Hoping to do a brisket for the 1st time next weekend.[​IMG]

    The shoulder turned out great! Took it out at 190 and wrapped it in foil for abour an hour. So stuffed I can hardly move.[​IMG]
