I'm in the market for a new smoker and I'm looking to get some ideas of which smokers would be pretty good for around $100-$300 price range.
I know you probably get what you pay for but any tips would be great.
Thanks in advance.
Gasket kit on the lid and aluminum door $28
Couple of extra washers on the top grate bolts to extend the L bracket a little $1
Handles on the main body/chamber for easier lifting to clean/replace charcoal $4
Second charcoal grate, placed at 90 degrees to catch smaller pieces of charcoal from falling through $12
I used 8" eye bolts to hold the grates together. This make lifting the grates out simple.
Brinkman water pan for easier access reloading HOT charcoal $12
Maverick ET-733 remote thermometer
The only two I highly recommend is the gasket kit and thermometer. Maintaining temperatures is a breeze from the first time firing up the WSM with a gasket and the pre-installed thermometer is way off, by up to 20-50 degrees.
