GMG Davy Crockett

I've been in the market for a smaller, cheaper pellet smoker. I was very interested in the Rec Tec mini because of its portability but they have now discontinued it. I have turned my attention to the GMG Davy Crockett. Everything about it is what I like....except i fear that it is too small. I love smoking full packer briskets and without that, well, it'd be a crying shame to own a smoker that can't smoke the King meat. So I'm wondering if anyone who owns a Davy has had experience smoking briskets (WITHOUT) separating the flat from the point. It amazes me how hard this has been to find this seemingly simple information. Thanks a lot. Stay smokey, my friends.

I have a friend that has one and he has done full packers, a few he has had to lop a bit off, or place a can under to arc the brisket up to fit. You have about 16" in length on the cooking grate.The last packer I bought for corned beef and pastrami making was right at 18". I could've crammed it in there.

I don’t have a GMG but my general rule is to buy bigger than you think. Within reason of course. It’s always nice to have more space. Like you I nearly bought the RecTec Mini but ended up buying the RT-680. I also use it as a grill and the extra space has definitely come in handy.

I think I read somewhere on here that they are improving the mini and it should be out early to mid '18.

Thank you very much! I appreciate it.
