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.

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?

    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
