Apartment smoker

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

The wife and I are getting ready to sell our house and go back to apartment life. This means I have to get rid of my 14.5 WSM.

I'm looking for suggestions on an electric or pellet smoker since charcoal is not allowed. Any thoughts?

You could convert a WSM with a heating element but thats just a sin. biggrin.gif

I have the smokin it smoker and love it. MES is a common favorite on this board. I am sure someone will suggest that soon. It really depends if your looking to smoke chips or chunks and how cold it gets in Nebraska. The smokin it smoker is an insulated tank and holds temps well in the cold.

It can get pretty cold. Insulated would be nice. Which smokin it so you have?

Just the #1. Smallest one they have. Wish I would have gotten the #3. Mine can find two shoulders or 3 racks of ribs cut in half, but forget about brisket unless it is a flat only.

That'd be nice. The patio isn't that big at the apartment and the garage we have is a little bit away so I'm not sure how convenient that'd be

This may send a few off the ledge, but i have a buddy who owns/uses one of these and he says it actually does a pretty nice job.

Heya,

 

I was in the same boat. I wanted a smoker but my apartment doesn't allow anything on our balcony. They only stated no gas/charcoal grills... So when I bought my smoker, I went with the 30in MES and haven't been questioned. Best decision I made. Great to use, lots of space, looks like a minifridge outside. I'd be happy to answer any questions relating to apartment life and smoking :icon_cool:
