Best Smoker!

jond36

Pros: Gas is cheap. Lights instantly, Large Chamber

Cons: Flimsy fish/ jerky trays, hard to dial in an exact temperature consistantly, Cheaper material than other brands

Smoker is everything you need as a novice or pro. I converted my smoker to natural gas. Extremely easy conversion explained by the company on their website. Bought the #51 drill bit at Ace Hardware for fairly cheap.   This is way better than my Smokin' It (Cookshack) smoker and the electrical bill cost so much more than natural gas. After a few smokes my monthly gas bill was still...

Masterbuilt XL 44 propane smoker

“Bout the version built for cabelas called Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite. Listen, it's supposed to be a smoker, but really, it's grill, no, an oven, that's it. I've used it several times now in order to find the sweet spots as far as operating it, there are none. The least of worries is that the lighter doesn't work, well, it does on one side, but I have to light one side manually. There are so...” --Travelbilly

“This is my first smoker and I've had some great success with it already.  It was pretty easy to get some good results even on my first runs.  I switched from chips to chunks for the wood and it solved the issue of having the chips burn up too quickly.   ” --samwise

Masterbuilt Two Door Propane Smoker

“When buying tools, I was taught to buy the best tool you could afford (majority of the time it ends up being the most expensive) it always ends up being an investment in value. I purchased this smoker to try my hand at smoking- not knowing if I would enjoy trying different recipes including smoking. This was a cheaper smoker and I considered this a potential "throw away" tool. After a few...” --4NAP

Landman USA 3405GW 34" Gas One Door Smoky Mountain Vertical Smoker

“I bought my Smoky Mountain Vertical Smoker back in 2008 at Wal-Mart and was a bit hesitant, because I had always used charcoal smokers, but after discovering how easy to use propane smokers are, I'll never go back.  Like I said, this unit is over 5 years old and still going strong, and I do a lot of smoking.  As far as durability and taste goes, you can't beat it. ” --ArkTraveler

“ I had a smaller GOSM and I needed more room for more meat and things. So I bought one on sale at Gander Mtn for 249.00. It's built vert sturdy and well made all the parts fit together snuggly and tight. Then it is very easy to light and maintain heat at any temp from maybe 110° to 340-350° with no problem. Some folks say that a gas smoker isn't the real thing but I guess they have never...” --mballi3011

“I got this smoker because i blew up my last gasser, that's another story. I have since made hot dogs kielbasa, Canadian bacon, venison roasts/jerky/ snack sticks/ hot dogs/ pepperoni, pulled pork, brisket and lunch a few times.  I can get it to hold temps around 115 deg consistently and from there on up.  I burn chunk that I cut from logs, and get 2-3 hours per chunk.  Very...” --MEBeanfarmer

“ Was originally looking at the Masterbuilt XL as an upgrade to my ECB that I've been using for the past 6 months and quickly outgrown.  I was in Home Depot and spotted this unit and poked around with the floor model and decided the price ($161.00) was worth it after reading a few SMF reviews on my phone in store.  The assembly process was easy and straightforward and took maybe 20-30...” --LegacyOfBob

“I've had my SH smoker for about 2.5 years... took a while to get the draft set exactly where I wanted it, but once that was right it's been a dream to use.   Under most conditions, and for most of my smoking, I run at about 250-265 degrees....  a flaw (maybe a feature) of my burner is that it will tend to have an audible whistle when set for this temp. I have been considering...” --raider2119

Masterbuilt M7P 7-in-1 Smoker and Grill with Pan and Basket Set

“Great first gas smoker (never tried charcoal) if you don't want to spend a lot of money up front. Gets a little cumbersome if you are using more than 1 level. Whole racks will only fit if you roll them (3 will fit rolled). The access to the chip tray is REALLY tight. Best thing to do is move the water bowl to the bottom rack and buy a cheap 3rd rack to still have 2 levels. This way it's much...” --grandmastershek
