Please help me choose a 2-door smoker


Joined Mar 10, 2017
I currently have a 1-door smoker, and I hate it because smoke/temp is lost when I open the door.
I am considering few options. Few considerations:
1)I want a big(ger) smoker box, ideally
2)I would prefer to stay away from glass windows. I don't think it's important to look at meat, but the window gets completely dirty all the time
3)I want it to be relatively wide so I don't have problems with brisket/ribs. For example MasterBuilt 30" is too narrow inside.
4)Propane, not electric

So here are the considerations. I am really not aware of any other possible contenders, and if there are some, would appreciate it

I'm looking at the 43" Dyna-Glo (you listed the 36" one above), mainly because I'm moving from my 12 year old BBQ Grillware GS-2100 vertical (legs finally rusted off and it's either weld new ones on or get a new one and oh, i don't weld). The reason I'm aligning these two is because the smoke box in my old BBQ Grillware is cast iron and is the exact same dimensions as the new Dyna-Glo, which has a flimsy smoke box but is otherwise looks to be a solid smoker.

I'm like you, I don't think a glass door is a good idea and that's keeping me away from most of the other models - also one of the only things I didn't like about my old smoker is that the grates are really narrow - I'd never be able to do a full brisket in it without separating the point and flat, which is a no no. So that's why I was looking at the widest decent smoker I could find.

I see it's been about a month since you posted - let me know what you ended up choosing.
