Just got my SM009 on Saturday. The wife didn't know what to get me for Christmas. I told her I would be right back. Came home w/ my wounderful present. I seasoned it Saturday, and smoked ribs on Monday. And they were great!!! Plan on a brisket or butt this weekend. The info on the forum has been great. I am so fired up right now I can't see straight. I will post my future smoke stories.
