Next smoker?


Joined Jan 3, 2014
I have been using a char broil smoker for a couple years now and looking for the next up. My buddy has a green egg but I don't want to spend the money.

Any ideas on a charcoal smoker that holds heat well and doesn't kill the budget?

Sure, shop CraigsList for a 22-1/2" Weber kettle. I bought mine about 4 years ago for $35 IIRC and got the OTG model with the ash catcher. If you are up for the extra geld, shop for a Weber Performer and get a table and gas assisted charcoal lighting.

I was coveting the BGE and saving my pennies to buy one but now that I have the Webers (yes, I bought several more of CL) I have no desire to own one. If it were any easier I'd feel guilty about taking compliments.
