post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Hello, I want to ask you guys one thing:

 

Which of this two smokers would you recommend.

 

The prices in Spain are:

 

Chargriller+smoker   199,95 + 86.95: 289.95€

 

Weber cooker  499€

 

Taxes included

 

I know that both are different smokers. But the price difference is big.

 

Which one would you buy? and why?

 

Well, thank you all four your help.(and please excuse my english)

WSM and the Char Griller isn't even a close 2nd.    Char Griller is a COS, and i recommend staying away from those, you'll put more into mods than it's worth.  Efficiency and ease of use the WSM is the way to go.

I would certainly go for the WSM. If you can afford both then that is great but the WSM would be my choice`.

I agree. I love my WSM

I would agree with the WSM but it really depends on your style of cooking

 

the offset requires you to be tending a fire, which a lot of people (including me) like to do

 

the WSM is a more set and forget low maintenence type of cooker and much easier to use

 

you really cannot compare those 2 cookers as they are completey different

What does "COS" mean? I couldn't find it in the acronym list.

I was wondering the same?

 

As to the original question, WSM without any hesitation.

Put it to you this way..... I started with a Charg-Griller, and after mods I had spent $250 on it. I used it for 8 months, got tired of always having to mess with it in order to maintain temps. I then sold it for $80 on craigslist, and bought a 22.5" WSM. It was the best move I could have made - the WSM is far superior, it works straight out of the box without any mods, and is near set-it-and-forget-it as you can get with a charcoal smoker.

 

Get the WSM - it's worth every penny, and you won't regret it.

Save yourself the time, money, and agrivation: go with a WSM and thank us later.

I own both!  Hands down the WSM blows the other away.

 

If I had owned the WSM first I never would have purchased the CharGriller.

It's a charcoal smoker that you use wood chunks with it to provide the smoke.

You can also build a Mini-WSM for under $100 and it makes a Great little portable smoker or just when you want to do something small. I have one and now cook all my pork butts on it.
