New to the forum, Was mildy concerned as when I joined my chrome stated there was a hack on the forum that compromised 303 of my passwords....strange. I love smoking meats,.I just recently purchased a SM066, I was previously, and still am a stick smoker. I have several from 500 gallon converted from a water tank, to several from old propane tanks.
I am a believer, my wife and I created "Wholly BBQ", tag line is "We'll make a believer out of you. We partner with churches that want BBQ meat for some type of event. We do the cookin and just ask for a donation. We usually do pretty fine, our proceeds goes to our church and other missions we supports.
Wanted to have less work, so I purchased the SM066. Please tell me one thing, so far I have definitely used to much wood in the chip box. It is getting better but wow, that thing smokes. Below is a sample ad we did for a re-union.
My first electric was the Amerique 066. And my first butt was a creosote coated disaster. Each time the smoke ran out, I added more wood. I used 12 ounces total in spite of the most excellent instructions that cautioned against it. That is what I deserved following peoples recommendations on another forum where Master Built reigns king. I learned my lesson. Nothing but perfection from that point forward. Enjoy and blessings to you and yours.
