Okay, I'll say it: Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker.

That WSM sounds good to me. Aint never owned one but heard a lot of folks speaking real highly of em. Also be total legal for comp cooking. Fairly mobile if a person want to lug it over to Granny's or the Menfolk class at Church..to the beer joint..cat house etc

Good to have you on Board Jay. If you're just getting started with smoking you can't buy a better backyard smoker than the WSM. IMHO, it's the best smoker out there for the money and it will serve you well for many years.

I'm confident you'll love it. It's a great design, and the learning curve isn't very steep or long. Congrats!

Hopefully you used the Amazon.com link from this site?!?!?!

Your best bet would be Home Depot or Lowes.

Let people know you're always on the lookout for fruit and nut woods in case they (or someone they know) are cutting something down. Meanwhile, like Puff says, you can probably find a big bag of hickory chunks at HD or Lowes. It'll last a fair length of time, while you scout for the free stuff.

You've probably seen TVWB's discussion on smoke wood. It's got what you need to know, except it touts mesquite, a wood easterners would shun because we have much better stuff to choose from. Texans call whatever crummy stuff they happen to be stuck with "the best." :P

Seems even before the ice storm here, I would see city workers cutting down pecan, wild cherry or oak trees. At the very least they were dropping big limbs because they were getting on the power lines.

Check with your local landfill and see where they are getting rid of the cut up trees that come in.
