    Hello all,

    My name is Toby and I am fairly new to the art of smoking.  I have been using a GOSM that I bought used.  I am a VERY experienced griller and would say I am very accomplished at it. BUT I am dying to get deeper into the art of smoking.  Like I said, I have been using a GOSM, and being the type that tends to be a bit of a traditionalist in most things I am left wanting.  I am wanting to get more to the traditional art of Q'in.  SO, what I ask of you guys is some recommendations equipment wise to help me get started.  Ultimately I want something like this   :)  But I would like to learn the art more before I make that leap.  Ultimately I would like to start a catering type operation because BBQ'n is what makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside :) lol.  Anyway, any help with recommendations would be greatly helpful.

    Welcome to the SMF. Glad to have you here. Lots of good folks, great recipes and knowledge. Looking forward to  your first qview. [​IMG]  That smoker is different, doesn't look to be a reverse flow and I'm trying to figure out that box on the left, is there a plate dividing the fire box and trays above it. I don't see a vent on it so assuming it's must be a warming box.

    According to the builder yes it is a warming box. Also I didn't necessarily mean that exact one but something of that magnitude. But that is eventually, definately not yet. I am anxious to hear some recommendations from some owners on what smoker I should start out with though :) I should also state that I didn't post that link to advertise it for anyone, I was just posting it because I thought it looked kinda cool. :) thank you for the welcomes!
