New Smoker

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, I'm am a traditional griller trying to get into smoking. Mainly I do pork ribs on my grill. I have been looking at smokers to buy, but don't know which to get. I've been looking at the WSM and the Brinkmann Smoke & Grill, but they don't look wide enough to handle many racks of ribs. I was also looking at a vertical smoker by Brinkmann, but have read some bad reviews. Any thoughts

Mwp welcome to SMF it is the best palce you could be on the net... lol Like i was saying I have the GOSM wide model from walmart, it has three racks and i bought a rib rack from Bed bath and beyond that holds 5 racks on there side. I luv my GOSM it is propane and with very few mods it is a smokin machine... it does well, i have done butts and a corn beef brisket and they have all turned out great (of course they each get better) i find new things each time i smoke... Are you near a Bass Pro Shop? they have a bunch of different models to look at. Hope this helps out some and again welcome aboard...

That sounds great. Question, is there an advantage to gas or electric over charcoal?

Holding temps on gas or electric are easy. Some say you do not get a smoke ring with electric does not hav anything to do with tast. ps I have charcoal and love it. just my .02

You say your are a griller? on what? charcoal or gas? I would stick with what I was already comfortable with....then choose from there...I am from the charcoal people...my .02

Mine is propane and yes I get smoke rings. I like it because when you open ther door you dont have to worry about the temp, as soon as ya close it back presto you are back to your cooking/smoking temp again... I am fixing to get a ECB and play with it too, it is smaller and a charcoal. hope this helps some but like BBQGODESS said stick with what you are comfortable fooling with and then expand from there....

Welcome to the SMF. You're wise in checking out reviews and specs. on your potential smoker. I think most of us would agree that bigger is better, you never know when you'll need that extra space. Good luck on your search.
