Hi Ricci,

I have to agree with you, smoking in the tri-state area seems to be rare indeed, as evident by the inability to find good lump or wood chunks in the local stores.

As for your questions, i'll let the vets answer them, i'm still waiting to order mine.

Good luck, and remember while smoking is good eats, most of all its relaxing.  Take your time and enjoy the learning experience.  Start off slow, maybe some butts (a very forgiving piece of meat) and work your way to ribs, brisket, etc.. It took me two years to make ribs good enough to serve my family, but I enjoyed every failure (so did the pup by the way) and learned lots in the process.

I too am NJ and want to start to smoke. I am an avid griller and have tried to "smoke" with my gas grills but no luck. It looks like this is the easiest method.

Hey all.   We are just south of you in Eastern Shore of Maryland, near Deleware. 

We are smoking lots.  There are pockets.

We are using the original Bradley lots and there are good numbers close to us.

We have easiy access via True Value and Bass Pro for smoking supplies.
