Welcome aboard. Hey, share your experiences about Qing abroad. I'm always curious on how other lands do the Q.

Welcome Shine,

Would love to hear those stories about Q'ing abroad (no, I'm not talking women!). I know that England is into it big time as is Germany but I've never cooked outside the country so l'm looking forward to hearing about it.

Redfin here. I love to cook and I'm a newby to the Bar-B-Que cooking world and hope to pick up a lot of info here to start me in the right direction. First thing is to purchase a new smoker/grill combo that is relatively inexpensive but will also maintain the correct temps. I would basically be cooking no more than a medium sized ham, a couple racks of ribs and a medium sized turkey at the same time. I'd also be interested in the different types of wood to use and the flavor they may represent.

I expect to be visiting this site quite often, so thanks Dan and Cheryl!!!

Any suggestions on brand name smokers would be appreciated.

Welcome Dan,

I've gone through a lot of smokers and grills and for someone just starting out, you can't go wrong with a Weber Smokey Mountain Smoker and a Weber grill. If you're looking for something a little more upscale that can cook in all kinds of weather especially cold weather I'd recommend a ceramic cooker either a Big Green Egg or a Primo Brand Cooker. On the ceramics you can smoke, grill, bake, make pizza's. They will do it all. They are definitley more pricey. A WSM will run you about $200 and you might be able to find them cheaper in the winter. The Big Green Eggs and Oval depending on the size will run you between $500-800 but it's money well spent.

Welcome to the forum and ask plenty of questions. The people here have the answers.

Welcome Shine. :) I too would love to hear some tales about q'ing abroad and post some pics if you have them.

Redfin, welcome to the board. :) I agree with Dallas' recommendations for the WSM and a Weber kettle (22.5"). You can probably get the combo for $275 this time of year (Amazon has the WSM for $204.87 with free shipping right now and Home Depot carries several Weber kettles year around). With that pair, you can pretty muchdo anything you want.

Redfin, Dallas and Bill are right, the WSM is a great little smoker and an inexpensive way to get started.
