Hi, I am a chef in the uk looking at starting up a pulled pork business, and I was hoping to tap into the knowledge that you across the pond have been honing for a lot longer than us.  

 

I was wondering if there was a reason to go for the traditional smoker, using charcoal, or if the electric smokers can match it with a lot less work and hassle.  

 

Any other thoughts surrounding this topic would be muchly appreciated.

Look at joking the UK Forum, lots of friendly people on their.

BobBull,

Please read my side-by-side comparison of charcoal/wood vs. Electric/smoke-pellets. Make up your own mind.

Charcoal/wood smokers can be made to be less labor intensive with a stoker of some sort (as was done in the test below).
