    G'day everyone.

    Hopefully this is in the right section.

    So im after my first smoker and am torn between what type of smoker and brand (bare in mind in im Australia) to get.

    I am leaning towards a gas (propane) smoker as i want to retain that natural smoke flavour as much as possible although... i would also like to cold smoke.

    i will eventually either build or buy a wood fired smoker although at first id prefer to start with either gas or electric.

    Also, silly question i know, but can you cold smeoke in a gas smoker through some external attachement?


    Whats you suggestion? What would be best suited to a someone like;

    1. hunts so there fore would like to smoke my own gatherings,

    2. room is not a problem

    3. really want to do briskets and pulled pork

    4. Would like to smoke fish

    5. Would like to cold smoke also


  2. What are your options, what is available? That will make it easier to make a suggestion.
