    First off I want to thank the Brinkmann Trailmaster LE users on here. I purchased mine Saturday based on what you guys said in the forum. I took all the advice and sealed everything I possibly could with high temp silicone as I was assembling it. I also had tuning plates and the charcoal basket ready before I assembled. I cured it with everything in place. I have a lot to learn but my first cook (ribs) were ok. I orderd the door seal for the firebox and smoking chamber and should be here before the end of week. Again thanks and I'm sure I will have a million questions before it's over.

    I do have a question, a friend of mine just recently bought some property, he said its overrun with peach trees and I can have the wood from whatever he cuts down. is this good smoking wood and if so how long do I have to wait to use it

    Yes you can smoke with peach. I would cut to the size splits or chunks you want and cure minimum of 6 months.

    To tag on to the peach wood question...a friend told me last night he had some wood from a plum tree that fell down, I would think that would be pretty good for smoking too?  What do y'all think?

    Yep should be good. Pretty much any fruit trees.
