Weber 731001 Smokey Mountain Cooker 22.5-Inch Smoker

This is the best smoker I have owned

mcollect

Pros: Quality, ease of use, great tasting foods

Cons: Front door

This is the fourth smoker I have owned and the best by far.Once it is assembled, it is almost foolproof. First smoke took some time to get the temperature adjusted. Once it hit the correct temp it was smooth sailing. I  have cooked a turkey for Thanksgiving and once I got it to temperature it sailed along without touching anything. A brisket smoked for 9 hours and half of the charcoal was...

“Had a Char-Griller offset for a year, then got the WSM 22.5". It was almost criminal how much easier this thing is to use. I ran a 14 hr. brisket, plus additional 2 hrs. of burnt ends, and I still had 1/4-1/3 of my charcoal left!   This somoker is such a joy to use that you will find yourself making excuses to find reasons to fire it up...heh-heh. ” --JIRodriguez

“I have read plenty of negative comments about this smoker and nearly all comments refer comparing it to the WSM. OK the WSM is one of the best out there - but this smoker can do just a good, it just needs a little baby sitting which I think is the best part of smoking. Its cheap ($50) and for that you will be smoking You'll certainly learn a lot more about smoking on this model than others,...” --AsapGoreng

“After some modifications to the smoker, it works great. Put new temp gauge in the lid and put one in the door. Plus, because it uses a lot of charcoal, also modified the charcoal pan by installing 4 bolts about an inch up and setting a 13" grate on top. That way ashes did not smother the coals and you can use less. Although you have to monitor this smoker the end result is fantastic BBQ!  Have...” --KC1982

“This smoker really does suck... that having been said, the basics are all there for you to make it useful.  As you will find out, if you use it in it's recommended configuration, you will find it very difficult to get this baby up to 200 degrees F.  The good thing is that you can pick them up used on craigslist for a steal! SO, you must rearrange it a bit to make it useable. ...” --mwolf1

“This is a very good smoker... especially for the price and size. I was skeptical with the limitations for temperature control with limited air vents, etc... but it surprisingly held the temp around 225 jsut fine. So... if you're wanting to do most of your smoking around 225, this unit works just fine for that. ” --snowave

“ I got excited when I saw this pop-up in the newsletter thinking maybe it was back on the market, but when I looked online Brinkman still shows it as no longer available.  It's basically the same smoker sold under the New Braunfel's and CharBroil names... I bought mine about 9 years ago at Home Depot.    I use it several times a year for ribs, pork roasts, pulled pork,...” --sskyking

“I have been using one of these for over 25 years. It is my go to smoker for many occasions. I learned a long time ago that the wind plays into cooking with any outdoor cooker. The area of Texas where I live seems to have wind almost constantly and when it gets to about 15-20 mph it would suck the heat and smoke out the bottom of this smoker. I acquired a 55 gallon drum and cut it right at one...” --TexasD
