I've been reading about the Dyna Glo vertical offset smoker and have been thinking of getting one. I am curious if anyone here owns a Dyna- Glo and also a WSM? How do you find the dyna-glo as compared to the wsm?
i know they are different with their own pros and cons (ex: you have easier access to meat on the Dyna-Glo vs trying to access the bottom rack on the WSM).
The Dyna Glo having 6 rack layers intrigues me; anyone measure how much each varies in terms of temp? is there a big gap between racks? If it is big, i imagine one would probably not smoke on all levels. hoping to use the dyna-glo when cooking for large house parties.
also based on some youtube pics, the paint on the dyan-glo seems to come off on top of the fire box. is that a common issue?
how many times do you refill the charcoal basket when cooking brisket? on an 18.5 WSM i might refill my charcoal basket 1x when smoking with lump coal. With briquettes, 1 load can typically go all the way.
