Hey all,

Zach from Illinois here.

Just purchased a Pit Boss Pro Series 1322-sq vertical smoker from Lowes. Should be here next week (just in time for a B-Day smoke at the end of April!). Looking forward to browsing the forum for tips and tricks of using my new smoker. I have been smoking for several years on just an old 22" Weber Kettle grill. Its served me well for narrow uses (ribs and poultry), but I'm looking forward to a proper smoker and doing more big cuts like Brisket and Pulled Pork (my one attempt at pork shoulder in the Weber was miserable!).

As a starting tip, are there any accessories that you have found helpful to have to go along with the smoker?

An AmazN smoker tube. Pellet smokers are nice and do a good job but you don't get the same smoke or bark that you get from a stick burner. On the positive side you don't have to babysit it as much as a stick burner.

I miss the hell out of my stick burner, but this is exactly why I made the switch...
