I wanna get a smoker. Limited selection up here. Question: would a cheaper, steel smoker, like the Masterbuilt mini 7 in 1, come anywhere close to producing the real thing (i.e., real bbq) or should I save my money for something more substantial. Thanks.

Hi smoke eh?,

Although I have never had the pleasure of cooking on one, I really believe that you can't do better for a first smoker than a Weber Smokey Mountain (WSM). For many, it is their first and last smoker. It's that good.

At about $175 (US) and a shipping weight of about 70 lbs, it may fit in your budget. Another bonus, their are a number of great websites that are almost devoted to WSMs. Expert advice is just a few keystrokes away.

For what it's worth,
Jay

check your local Crappy tire http://www.canadiantire.ca/assortments/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=845524443120003&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath=2534374303517513&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath=2534374303517526&FOLDER%3C%3EbrowsePath=1408474396669491&FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=1408474396669491&ASSORTMENT%3C%3East_id=1408474396670271&bmUID=1123593175079. This is a nice little unit that can be used as a grill or a smoker. Most places will also have a charcoal burning bullet smoker, which will work grate too.

You could start off with this unit as I have. It is my first smoker that I did not build out of crap or convert a gar grill. It is not very big but it does a great job in my opinion.

Home depot also carries a bigger unit.

If I had it to do over I would get the one from Home depot as it has a larger grill surface and a bigger firebox.

For sure get the Char-Griller at Home Depot. It has some great features, and a huge surface. I did 2 chickens, a roast, and 2 racks of spares at the same time. Used about 25 lb of Kingsford and it was all great Very Happy
