    You need to try ABT. Google ABT and barbecue. They are great - I made 40 of them yesterday.

    I'm a big smoker. I've got two metal pots with a grill sandwiched in between. One of the pots has a 3 inch hole drilled in it. I can use a third pot as a firebox to make it a cold-smoker for bacon. I set this on top of my table-top propane stove. I love making honey and jalapeno bacon, pork ribs, smoked pork loin, Canadian bacon, brisket, jerky, smoked duck, chicken, pastrami, and recently I've been working on making some decent beef ribs.

    I've got a weber smokey mountain too. Love it. Last weekend I cooked a smoked turkey, at about 180 C. Took 3 hours and was delicious.

    Do you know this site?

    I've got a WSM. I've cooked a few pork butts and ribs over the last couple weeks. Used the pork butts for pulled pork. They came out GOOD. Cooked with hickory at about 250* for 6 hours, spritzed every 2 hours with a blend of cherry and apple juice. Then served with either my apple cinnamon BBQ sauce or my raspberry chipotle BBQ sauce. The sauces are non-Paleo/Primal, but they taste really good.

    I second the vote for ABTs (Atomic Buffalo Turds). The're peppers stuffed with a cream cheese mixture and cocktail wieners (or lil' smokies), then wrapped in bacon and cooked on the smoker for about 2 hours. The original recipe uses jalapeno peppers, but you can use sweet peppers for less heat or habaneros if you're a sado-masochist.

    The way I usually make them:

    Sweet peppers
    Cream cheese (make sure it's softened up)
    Shredded cheddar jack cheese
    Black pepper
    Garlic powder
    Onion powder
    Chili powder
    Hilshire Farms Cocktail Wieners
    Sweet Baby Ray's Hickory BBQ sauce
    Applegate Farms uncured bacon
    Whatever BBQ rub you use

    Cut the peppers in half, and scrape out the seeds and white membrane.
    Mix the cream cheese, cheddar jack, and seasonings in a bowl, then spoon it into a small plastic sandwich bag (or cake icing pipe bag). If you use a sandwich bag, cut one of the bottom corners off.
    Pipe the cheese mixture into the pepper halves.
    Put the cocktail wieners into a bowl and cover them with BBQ sauce.
    Put 1 sausage into each pepper half.
    Wrap each pepper half in a half slice of bacon, and stick a toothpick in each one to keep it together.
    Lightly dust the peppers with the BBQ rub of your choice.
    Smoke for 2 hours at about 250* or so.

    You can also make these in the oven a lot quicker. Making them on the smoker adds a nice flavor though.

    I would love to have a genuine smoker, but I've come up with methods using a Little Chief smoker, a Nutriflow dehydrator, and slow oven cooking to make jerky and pulled pork. It's not the same, but it will have to do until the real smoker shows up.

    I've got a smoke hollow propane smoker that I love. I'd have something bigger and more impressive if I was cooking for more than my wife and I. My favorite is smoked deer sausage.
