Late to the party here, but for those looking at lower cost smokers, I suggest looking into the Pit Barrel Cooker. It is extremely easy to operate and produces exceptional results. Plus you get to cook your meat by hanging it on hooks. It also has huge capacity and cooks faster than traditional smoker methods.

I've been very happy with mine. 

I looked in to the Pit Barrel cookers when I was smoker shopping. They are nice and people love them. What turned me away was the limited access to the fuel. I ultimately went with the Weber Smokey Mountain 22".

my neighbor has that one. I don't think you can go wrong with either of those options.  It is a bit tricky getting the charcoal to the bottom of the barrel, and if you do need to reload, that is a challenge. But I've almost never needed to do that.

Did you manage to get his autograph?

I've started using 100% hardwood scraps for grilling and it's been working great. I just start a fire with cherry and oak scraps let it burn down so everything has a good char then i smother the fire with the lid to basically make charcoal. Doesn't last as long but i get a ton of smoke and a LOT less ash.

It is on the box in the attic. My wife and I have allergies so wood smoke is out of the question for even grilling. I think we only used the gas grill once or twice last year.

All that black stuff looks like it would be bad for your health.  I'll be right over to get that out of your way and make your life safer.

Killing some time with 10 minutes to go before lunch.  Thank you very much.  Having to explain the tummy rumbling to my co-workers without letting on that I'm goofing off on the internet.

For some strange reason I now want a steak for lunch.  They don't have those at McDonald's.

Try Arby's, that's as close as you can get.  Their corned beef is tasty as hell.

I've had the Ruben a couple times recently.  Have to get it without the sauce as Thousand Islands and I don't agree but otherwise it's pretty tasty.

I would like to play with one and will probably build one at some point. Just waiting for a drum to fall in my lap.
