Which smoker to buy?

Postby sarahjess » Wed Jul 05, 2017 10:03 am

Hellooo everyone !! I'm planning to gift my sister a smoker but unable to zero in on any particular smoker. There are so many kinds of smokers, propane, electric, charcoal, etc, etc. Can someone please suggest which smoker to buy?

Some questions:
What is your budget?
What is your sisters experience with outdoor cooking?
What kind of space for the cooker does she have?

Tough question......depends on budget.....I started with a 150 dollar one and now am way beyond that price wise. I would say you can put out good BBQ on darn near anything once you can control the temp and smoke. I would say the best your budget allows.....I currently avoid the big box stuff but I admit it's exactly where I started. Does she have experience? Budget?

My first one (that I still have and use) was the Dyno-Glow offset upright.
It's very inexpensive and while the metal is thin, it's a real smoker that works properly and can produce briskets, ribs and butts that rival anything done on a better cooker..
