I purchased the ST last July and have smoke just about everything you can think of. My favorites are Brisket, Boston Pork Butts, and RIBS mmmm... I have been told by many people over these last few months that my ribs are the best they have ever had. I tailgate and pass them around to people I have just met. Friends and family know when I say "I'm smokin ribs today" they ask if I will have enough for them. I always try to smoke more than I need.
One thing that you will need after purchasing the ST is a internal temperature probe. I use a wireless because when doing brisket or pork butt, you will need to monitor for proper temp. Google it for more info.
