  1. Have wanted to get into smoking beef for some time.

    A recent issue of United Services Coop magazine that was dedicated to Texas Barbeque gave me the final push to jump in.

    Did research online for a couple of weeks and kept coming back to this site.

    Finally, I convinced myself that a Weber SMJ was what I needed to get started and probably what I deserved since I have never smoked anything in my life.  Then, thanks to your forum, I discovered the Master Forge charcoal bullet smoker.

    If I can learn to use it, there will be opportunities to move up to a more sophisticated smoker.

    Thanks to this forum, I opened the box at Lowes and was able to check every piece for condition. Assembled it and burned it in yesterday.  Will smoke a brisket this weekend.  Again, thanks for a great forum.
