I have a 45 on the way. I am pumped to start cooking with it. I have used a BGE for years, still love it, but wanted to go to something where I was not chained to the work. Been reading this forum and I was impressed with the all the great info. It was yet another reason why I choose cookshack over all the other electric smokers that I researched for months. I am sure I will be bugging you experts on how to do everything. Can't wait to start

Glad to have you aboard, I bet you will find all those great recipes you used on your BGE will work in your 045, you will just have to figure out what to do with all your spare time.
Welcome aboard, I too and a proud owner of a SM045, I also have a ceramic cooker and love both, the SM045 is simple to use and u will love using it for the longs cooks..
Thanks for the kind welcome. I am anxiously waiting for my smoker to arrive. In the mean time I have been reading all the posts which only gets me more anxious because I want to get smokin. I have learned a ton especially from SO's 101 posts, thanks SO! Since I doubt it will be here by the weekend (I know, unrealistic, but I can hope)I will have to smoke a salmon slab in the old BGE for a party Saturday. The sacrifices we must make! I will be back as soon as it arrives to get some suggestions on what to start my smokin experience with.
I finally got my smoker and am currently running it through the curing process. I have a simple question. Is it normal or expected to see smoke coming out between the door and the smoker? I don't know if it is pertinent but it is coming out the top left corner (opposite side of the latches). It is not as much as the amount coming from the opening on the top but it is noticeable. Any thoughts?
Its normal and will decrease the more you use your new smoker. The CS smoker is so efficient you need some air movement. My Amerique had a LOT of smoke coming out around the door when I first used it, but now there is almost none coming out.
Thanks I appreciate your insight. I guess I am just a little cautious and wanting my CS to work perfectly right out of the box. Now I can focus on smoking some salmon tomorrow. Thanks again.
Thanks I will check it out. I got a good recipe now that I have used on my stick burner but hey that is what this is all about, trying new things.
