  1. Hi all.

    I am a complete newbie, I have eaten plenty of good BBQ!

    Currently use a Weber Silver but am aching to smoke. Have been poking around some websites, stores and craigslist. I am not averse to buying a used smoker but aren't sure what I want / need yet.

    Currently leaning to a propane for ease, but haven't ruled out something like the Charbroil/Braunfels Silver Pro.

    The main challenge will be convincing the better half how much it's needed and how much it will enhance our lives....

    Welcome aboard. My wife was skeptical about me buying a smoker. Now she thinks this is the best hobby I have ever had because she gets to reap the rewards too.

    Welcome, Andy. You'll get lots of great advice here on smokers. Best forum for smoking on the net. Good luck with getting the wife on board. My missus still rolls her eyes [​IMG] at me every time I start talkin about buying something new. She just doesn't get it: I NEED MORE STUFF TO SMOKE WITH!! [​IMG]
     
  10. Welcome to the forum Andy. May I suggest checking out garage sales also.
     
  11. Welcome. I actually live in Lewisville when I was in the 2nd and 3rd grade. I believe the high school mascot was the catamounts?

    hey welcome to SMF, and when it comes down to convincing the better half I have always found it is better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

    I don't think it would be hard to convince her with the price of most bbq dinners I've seen. You can produce just as good if not better yourself and not cost as much. Welcome to the SMF family!!!
     
  20. That's a lot of replies!

    I stopped by Home Depot, just to have a quick look, and found a Brinkmann or something that looked like it was made from hammered flat dry cleaning clothes hangers.

    The metal was so thin that when I open the door, the side panel distorted.

    Any brands just to stay the devil away from?

    BTW, I am not a native Texan, or even American for that matter. You have one of those pesky brits amongst you.....
