So I have a WSM 22.5" that I love, usually get a good 10 hours out of it. The only problem I have is having to be around to check on things. For shorter smokes I use my weber grill with a pan of water, uses way less charcoal and still has great flavor.
Is there a smoker out there that will still give me that great smoke flavor, but is it bit more "automatic"? I know a lot of people use the MES, and I've read about the Smokin It #3.
Between kids, their school, their activities, and my work I can't just sit out on the patio like I used to - always somewhere else I have to be. I'd love to be able to prep a piece of meat in the evening, then sometime the next day throw it in a smoker and have things ready when I get home. I know this is like cheating.....
