Hello and Hi to all,
Introducing me, a poor soul who doesn't own a meat smoker yet however, I have been treated numerous times to smoked pulled pork from a friend of a friend. It's getting to the point that I want to move in his house and just eat his smoked meat. Since this maybe considered creepy by some and erotic by others I have decided to buy and smoke my own meat.
I however, have the further dilemma that I can't decide between a charcoal or propane smoker. My friend used the WSM, in fact since he went and built an UDS, he offered to sell me the WSM for half retail. My better half wishes for us to use a propane smoker. I am thinking a 7 in 1 smoker to compromise but I don't know if they are as good as the WSM.
I went and looked at several smokers at Gander Mountain, Home Depot, Menards today. I liked the Smoke Vault and the Smoke Hollow Deluxe double insulated version for 379(although a member here has a review on amazon regarding the poor design of the sliding drawer) but if I could add insulation to the Smoke Vault 24" I would be fine with that too.
I am fine with laying down some cash but don't want to be buying something that I will want to sell in a couple years. I already have the Maverick ET7 in my amazon basket.
