    About a year ago I got out a ECB smoker and tried it out. Used a lot of the mods on this site. Had a lot of fun and learned a lot. At Christmas I got a Master Built Gasser.  Really enjoying it. Now I am thinking I need something bigger. Maybe step it up and do a UDS.

    I think I am developing into a smoke master or ... addict. Is that a sign that I am having issues.

    Or is it when u see a BBQ place that you thought was good but now you think. They stink my Q is way better.

    Or is is when you want to try more exotic types of woods to smoke with? 

    Or you want to try different meats. Trying to barter with all your hunting friends.

    Does it stop, should it stop?

    Once you are hooked, there is no 12 step program.

    You are hooked when you smoke your Hebrew National hot dogs instead of just steaming or straight grilling.

    Ok, I've just started smoking, and I've thrown hotdogs in the smoker because I knew they would be ready when I had to add more fuel.  Great way to get a smoke fix fast, while waiting for the main course to finish.

    No cure. It's called O.S.D. Obsessive Smoking Disorder.

    One more issue that comes up. When you go to the local butcher and they know you by name and ask what you are smoking this time :)

    Or when you go up a level in the smokingmeatforums you get excited.

    Or you have to stop the family from eating to get a Q-view pic
