Just found this site while looking for directions on building my own smoker. Looks like a wealth of information for me to look at when the kids go to bed. Just started smoking last summer, although I have ALWAYS grilled with charcoal, and absolutely love it. I was even able to convince my mom and dad we should do smoked baby backs for Christmas last year. Can't wait to read through the posts, and figure out what I want to build. Sure I'll be posting soon.
