    Please tell me what propane smoker you guys would recommend that is as good or not better than the Smoke Vault 24"! I think the "friend" that gave me Big Poppa is going to be an Indian giver. Please not a Masterbuilt....or one with a lot of mods or tinkering needed. :th_crybaby2:

  2. After using the Smoke Vault, I think you will be hard pressed to like anything else.  Keep an eye on Gander Mtn Sales flyers!

    That stinks!  What happened?  Did the friend start browsing SMF and realize what he/she was giving up?

    Ask to rent it at least until after the Super Bowl....

    Sorry to hear about this bad luck.

    Lady Kat..... UGTBSM.....  Indian giver my pork butt....    Talk sweet to Pops and have him ship his smoker to you.... Then his kids can build a new one for him... His is all broke in and really knows how to smoke great grub...  Or, nepas left his in Pennsylvania.... maybe you can Indian give it to yourself via signed affidavit from Rick....  We do have friends is Naw Lins that do bad JuJu to folks that take stuff back....

    Drat! And we do have a voodoo doll in the house! I have family in NOLA still! Lol! Just trying to figure out options here. If it doesn't come back...what to replace it with. Would love another CCSV....just don't have $300 right now. Lynn (hubby) said what would be a good one for amatuer comps? Heck....I don't know!

    I do have Elvira tho. She is an electric Brinkman. Le' Sigh! Son has her at his house.

    Usually electrics aren't allowed in comps... charcoal only

    Lynn mentioned comps! Oh heck...I don't have time either! Lol.....figured it was charcoal or stick burners for them anyway.

    Crossing fingers! I think he is jealous of how often l use it compared to him. I have even taught him some things I have learned here...and he is an Executive Chef!

    Thanks for some suggestions! I do think he will bring it back....but....just in case...I want to look at my other options. To me there is nothing easier to use than this one. I really like the propane smokers. Going to be doing research thru here.

    I saw that exact one at Sam's and was thinking of recommending it too. I have no idea how it cooks, but it looked really cool because it had a lot of cook space, rack options, and I believe it has dual burners. Seemed like a great smoker for the price.

    Those things are HUGE too.  Might be taller than I am!  [​IMG]

    One thing I am noticing in the specs part of the gassers out there.  Some say that the burner part of the propane unit (I don't know the tech stuff) is cast brass burners.  In the HVAC world I know that Stainless is better.  Any one have an issue with that...or does it matter with the smokers.  Camp Chefs are stainless.

    Kathryn,

    Somkinb has a point. They carry Horizon Pits-pricey , but real heavy $700 to $900 or so... like the "old" New Braunsfelds were.
