I'm looking for an insulated smoker that won't break the bank. I'm looking for something short of $300.
I'm not opposed to modifying an existing model. I'm looking at the camp chef smoke vault or something similar if I was going to modify it with insulation, but I'd like a two door so I don't have to lose heat and smoke while tending the chips. Any thoughts or suggestions? Any old threads I need to visit that already address this issue?
The reason I'm sort of set on the insulated idea is that it's kind of cool around here most of the year. It was 22° Easter morning when I started smoking a brisket and I had a heck of a time keeping the temp up on my Charbroil side burner. I had to put blankets on it! That's also one of the reasons I'm looking at gas and a vertical unit.
Thanks in advance,
