Well I haven't been on here for awhile, because I've been on deployment...anyway, I used to have a Char Griller w/ offset firebox and a BBQ Genie added to it. I loved that thing and made some amazing food...but I had to get rid of a lot of stuff...and I was ready for a better smoker.
Here's the issue I'm needed help with. I want a smoker that I can cook 2 decent sized turkeys in it for thanks giving, and everything else. The last smoker had such a small drum that I had to by tiny turkeys. I also want something that will hold heat really well I couldn't get the char griller very hot, even with that BBQ Genie. This is going in my back yard, because I do not have room for a trailer. I want something that will last....and I've been tossing around the idea of gas and charcoal...so if there was one that does both that would be amazing. I tend to use split wood to smoke with, because I like to stoke the fire less. I would also like a large surface to grill on for those quicker burger/hot dog parties. The offset firebox worked great for me, but I open to any suggestions. I just don't know what I should get or where to get it anymore....I've been gone for close to 2 years.
I miss good food so I'm looking to get this before I come home in June. I would love to build my own but don't really have the tools to do that :(
Well thanks for the help.
