a few things that are great to try in the smoker

trout
chicken
hams
meatloaf< this is friggin awesome.
stuffed peppers in various forms. ABT's for instance. I imagine regular stuffed peppers would be good also.
turkey
chicken wings
and the normals pulled pork butt, brisket, ribs. I have deduced anything made in the oven or grill is better to smoke it. mmmmm.

I made my smoker from an old refrigerator, removed the motor & freon, removed the original door & made a plywood door instead. It's been in operation over 20 years.

It works great, I kept the refrigerator racks & place the meat on these. I run an extension cord & the heat comes from 2 hot plates (the single burner type you can buy at Walmart for $10), it burns hickory sawdust in 2 small heavy duty frying pans. I have a thermometer hooked to it, and I'm able to regulate the temperature from anywhere from 80-200 degrees. I got the idea from an old homesteading book, it looks pretty backwoods, but like I said, it works great.

I've smoked everything in it from jerky to keilbasi to whole hog hams. It can make up to 20# of jerky at a time.

Loggy,

I'm just getting started myself and I would highly recommend this website: http://www.amazingribs.com. It covers everything from smokers, to meat cuts, to recipes, etc. It's perhaps the most comprehensive smoking websites I've found.

BTW, good choice on the Weber SM, it comes highly recommended.
