So, it's been years since I've owned a smoker, but I've just bought a new house on a decent piece of property, and am considering my options.
Shortly before moving, my gas grill had a control break, and while that isn't a huge deal, it has lived close to its life expectancy. So, now I'm considering a shift to something new.
I saw the Oklahoma Joe's Longhorn 3 burner grill on a recent trip to Lowes and was completely blown away, as I've been considering something similar as a built in for my new backyard. http://www.lowes.com/pd_606673-82210-15202029___?productId=50329705&pl=1&Ntt=oklahoma+joe+smoker
There are a few reviews of this guy on here, and generally speaking, they seem to be the majority positive. There are a few mods that several people call out (better seals seems to be primary), but in general, it is overall positive.
Now, given that I'm a single dad with custody, I want to make sure that I'm making a decent investment when I break over that $200 mark. So my question is:
- Will this, or others like it, be a decent smoker, and get me and my son down the road to making our own jerky, smoked sausages, and other various meats?
- If not this style (all in one type of grilling item), what would you recommend?
Thanks in advance,
