Looking for a smoker (unsure if this is even available)....

  1. I've been smoking for a few years now with a Char-grill smoker and I love it but I'm wanting to upgrade to something that might fit my style a little better. Does anyone know of a Smoker that I can use gas to regulate the heat but still use wood to add smoke.  I'd prefer an offset box with a decent size chamber (large enough to cook a turkey or a few rack of ribs).  I've never been a fan of propane because I love the flavor charcoal gives, but I figure that using propane to regulate heat would be a little less work.  And if this type of smoker is available I'd still be able to add charcoal on occasion to give it some extra flavor.

    You may want to just get a BBQ guru for your offset. I have one on my WSM & it will regulate the heat to with in a couple of degrees of what you set it at and will stay there as long as there is fuel in the smoker.

    I switched from a Char-griller smokin' pro to a 22.5" WSM and the WSM was hands down the better smoker. Longer more stable temps, super easy to use, takes up less deck space, holds more meat than my char-griller did.
  4. Wow that BBQ guru sounds neat, first time I've heard of / seen it.  Can anyone tell me how it works or what exactly it does.  It looks like it supplies air to the firebox via a fan but can you put the firebox and/or the cooking chamber on a specific heat and this unit regulates the air keeping that area a a specified heat? I can't find to much info about it on the website, just been able to find detailed specs and prices.
