My wife and I are in the process of building a lake house and so I need to figure out what my options are with grills and smokers. Currently, I have a BGE which I think I'll be able to just wheel out from the basement onto a patio. At home I have a Little Chief smoker which I use solely for smoking trout and bass I bring home from the lake. Its a little small for what I'm doing and so I'd like to abandon that and get something for the lake which I can smoke fish as well as handle ribs/briskets, etc. Similarly, I think my BGE is a little small for smoking fish.
I will need a propane grill for cooking hamburgers, hotdogs, etc., and was wondering if there was a grill out there which could grill on the main surface, but also act as an offset smoker, too. I probably have about six feet of space in the corner of a covered porch which I can use. Unfortunately, I can't incorporate a vent of any kind since the roof is causing some issue, so my hope is that I can put a box fan or something out there to keep the smoke away from the house.
Does anyone have a suggestion for whether there's a smoker out there that does it all, or should I keep the idea of an offset smoker separate from the propane grill....anyone with the perfect "lake" setup?
I've searched the site fairly extensively, but forgive me, I'm a newbie.
