    I've been smoking for a few years now.  First with a gas Brinkmann, which I did not like.  I actually got rid of it and didn't have a smoker for a couple years.  I got back into it with a buddy of mine.  We did a couple contests using 2 ugly drums and a weber kettle.  They really performed well.  This past summer, my wife got me a 22.5" WSM, which has performed like a dream.  So easy to maintain temps and it keeps turning out really good food.  The attached pic is of my first smoke on it in July.  I did 2 racks of ribs and a BBQ fatty.

    This past weekend, I did some beef jerky for the first time and it also came out excellent.  Good smoky flavor and not too tough.  All in all, I am looking forward to seeing what everyone else is doing, and trying new things with my own smoker.

    In addition, I am a KCBS certified judge and table captain.  I'm hoping to do a lot more of that over the next couple years and attain my master judge cert.

    Always nice to see another WSM fan! I tell people using mine is "smoking for dummies" easy to use... lol. Not sure what your winters are like, but I found a 6 ft. x 8 ft. welding blanket and some spring clamps will let you run even in bellow freezing windy weather without any problems, and best of all it folds up and stores easy in the summer!
