Hi my name is Zack and i am a smoke.
Anyway i was trying to find some opinions from some real smokers on the charcoal vs. electric issue before i go out and buy, since nobody at the store can tell me the difference. I'm looking at the Brinkman's and i would be great if anybody can point out witch has the advantage over the other. I dont really mind tending to the charcoal, unless i am doing it all the time. Does the charcoal have a considerably better taste to outweigh the ease of the electric? And so on. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks alot, Zack. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
