    Hey guys,

    Great site.  I tried to do some searching around but could not find any answers.  Do you all have any preference to what metal of smoker boxes?  I am looking into buying one pretty soon.  Thank you for the responses

    I assume by smoker box you are asking about a chip holder to put in your smoker???

     If so ,Cast iron would be the way to go IMHO.

    sorry.  Yes I mean a chip holder to put into a gas grill.  Can't afford the smoker itself yet

    Like i said i would go w/ cast iron w/ a top . won't warp in the heat and i think will provide a more even heat .
