Hi all, I am a new member and just left an intro at roll call.
I have been using a propane smoke hollow for about a year now. Even with the inconsistent temps of the smoker, I have been getting good results with ribs, pork butt, and pork loin. (You just really have to babysit it.) I really enjoy creating rubs and playing with different flavors, and would like to upgrade to a better/larger smoker.
I am torn between a stick or pellet.....
I enjoy the "tending and having some cold ones while doing so, but there are times when it would be nice not to.
I am scared to leave my current smoker for more then 10 min.
Can you get good smoke from a pellet smoker? I could get my propane look like a Peter built at -20.
Also, my smoke hollow has a water bowl. Are they necessary?
I have narrowed it down to Rec Tec as far as pellet due to reviews and price range.
Have not researched sticks as much.
Bottom line is, I like the idea of either one. Never used either. Want to produce great meat consistently.
Any and all feedback is welcome!
