I just wanted to say hello to all. I am from WI and have been lurking here for a couple of months. I decided a few months ago that I'd like to take up smoking as a hobby. At the time I was just going through the final preperations for my wedding. Well, fast forward 4 months after the wedding and I fianlly had my wife convinced that I deserve a WSM 22" Just as I sit down to order the WSM, she pops in the room with what looks like a white marker. It had two pink lines on it.... So NOWWWW we are expecting a baby which I am super excited about as well. She is only about 5 weeks along, and nobody really knows yet (except for this random group of strangers on this forum). This put my smoking desires on hold for a minute or two... I told my wife that for my birthday (by June 26th) I want that WSM 22" smoker! It is the last gift I'll be getting for ME in quite some time. So I am picking up an extra trip next month (I am an airline pilot) and getting my WSM!!! Looking forward to sharing more with you all, and more importantly sharing what I learn on here with my family! She makes fun of me now for being on these forums so much.... but once she tastes my first brisket she will see what it is all about! Just wanted to say hello---this is an awesome group of people!
