I've been smoking meat for around 20 years now. My first love is the pig, but if it's made of protein, I've probably smoked it. I started out with a Brinkmann barrel smoker, but around 10 years ago I lucked into an Alto Sham restaurant smoker. Lately, I've been making quite a bit of charcuterie and have sausages and whole muscles hanging all over the house. Since I've got a great supply of fresh, cheap seafood (my brother in law does QA for a big distributor) I've been on a big seafood kick as well and am always looking for new recipes and ideas.
