Smokers???

4 posts in this topic

So my father's day present was a charcoal smoker from Maynard's. My wife wasn't sure if she should get that or the gas one. I looked today at the store and I am not sure.

I do already have one similar to the Brinkman ones that is gas. I have done many turkey's, ribs, sausage and other things. The things I don't like is that it is hard to keep it at a low temp and doesn't have much room with only two 12" round racks. I would really like an old fashioned fridge conversion but I am sure my neighbor would complain if I had that sitting in the backyard.

Wondering if the present would be much better than what I already have, should I trade for the gas version, or should I keep what I have and wait for something better? Thanks in advance for all your thoughts.

Do the Fridge conversion, mine (I have two) are on wheels so they stay in the garage and only come out when I smoke. All the neighbors come running when I smoke meat. Mine holds about 25 pounds of meat (venison sausage sticks, turkeys, you name it).

Also that's the downside of gas getting a low temp, but with my fridge smokers I can't use them past November because I can't get the temp high enough. So the fridge would be a great option for the summer. Charcoal is a pain, sold mine at a garage sale

Get an electric smoker......set the temp and walk away year round.So well insulated snow won't melt off the top when it is 200 degrees inside.
