I have been smoking on a Brinkman Electric for a couple years now, and I'm starting to feel constrained by it's temperature limitations. I can gain or drop the temp by using different electric cords and making adjustments ...blah, blah, blah... Basically, I think I'm getting bored. I'm definitely annoyed that I cant lay out a decent slab of meat across the dayum thing...
SO.... I'm sure I'm getting ready to start an internal war amongst the group; but here it comes: What is the best smoker type/style?
I've seen the gravity fed..the side boxes.. barrels..reverse flow... water trays... It seems the list goes on and on.
So...here I am, reading, and reading. Studying smoker designs and trying to understand the reasoning behind the designers decisions; yet couple them with my own limited experiences.
Without building/buying a bunch of different smokers... I'm trying to figure my next investment. I'm not doing any competitions, by any means. But I do enjoy having abunch of people come over for a good afternoon.... Plus it certainly helps when a bunch of guys are talking trash about cars with a cooler full of beer and that beautiful smell of smokey goodness coming.
I'm sure a bunch of you graduated from your first smoker...second ...or more. haha! ...With the experience you have, what would you shoot for??
I appreciate your input... Thank you for your time.
