    I am fortunate enough to spend my winter months in Texas and my summers in Ontario. I use a Weber one touch gold/w/Smokenator, and WSM. I enjoy doing Canadian Bacon, Butts, and Briskets Am playing with ham at the moment. I am a newbie having only been at it for one year. I am all ears and love the tips and recipes. Smoke on !

    Thanks Cowgirl, leaving for Canada a week from today, so the smoker may get put on hold for a while depending on the weather. Hard to get butts and briskets in my area as well. very expensive. Later !!!

    Welcome aboard! How do you like the smokenator? Did you try indirect grilling/smoking on the Weber without the smokenator? Asking because I'd like one, but my cheap gene keeps talking me out of it since I have an ECB that smokes fine already.

    Welcome to the SMF!

    I too use a Weber Kettle. I love using it for smoking. I doesn't hold much but that's ok. I'm getting a Weber bullet this weekend. I looked at the Smokenator, but I've had good luck with the system I've got going. So if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    Here's a couple of pictures from a recent smoke that shows my Weber

    Hi and welcome to SMF!

    Just like The Dude, I too started smoking in a kettle- that got me hooked. You have the right gear to create feasts, my friend. May the TBS follow you.

    Hey Big Steve, I like it pretty good. It is very easy to keep in the
    "Smokin" zone of 230-240, but if you want to jump it a little to crisp up some chicken skin or set the bark a little it is very hard to do. I did cook without for a while, I used a pan of water on one side and my coals and chunks on the other and a tin foil baffle if the need arose. In many ways it was more versatile like that, but for a long cook, like a large butt or brisket the Smokenator does free me up quite a bit more, not so much temp watching is needed. Though some times, a cooler full of cold ones and a comfy chair with some tunes and temp watchin' ain't all that bad. Hope this long winded answer helps some .
