I'm going to get my new smoker today and I'm still not sure if I should get a gas or charcoal? I had a gas one before and I liked it because it was so easy to use and I didnt have to build a fire or have charcoal on hand. I had my mind made up I was going to try a charcaol this time but now am rethinking. I like the idea of a charcoal one because its more traditional I guess, and from what I've read you can smoke at lower temps than you can with a gas one. Also have heard you can get more smoke by using charcoal. But I think the ease of a gas one is going to win out. My old gas one I could never keep below about 220 unless i was out in the dead of winter, any tips on keeping a gas smoker a little cooler?
