    Hey everyone, I'm Bill; I'm 32 years old from souther NJ, USA. I've grilled on propane before but I'm planning to pick up a smoker because I love ribs and that's the best way to cook 'em. I'm looking at the Weber Smokey Mountain as I hear that's a good one, but I came to this forum for advice in that regard, as well as info on the smoking process.

    Welcome to the forum Bill!

    You just can't beat a WSM.

    They are very easy to use & a great smoker to learn on.

    If you go to BBQ comps you will see some of the teams using them.

    They put out great Q.

    Welcome from SC, Bill. It's good to have you on this site. A WSM is a good starter. However, if you can work out the budget, an offset will give you the wood flavor more than any other type of cooker.

    Good luck with your choice, Joe.

    Welcome to the Forum Rendakor!
    I've never had a WSM but a lot of people here swear by them. I started with propane & recently went to an offset.
    Try the WSM to get your feet wet and don't be afraid to ask questions!
