Hello everyone, I am looking for a wood smoker for my fiance for Christmas. He's a Southern man and takes his BBQ very seriously, and has been talking about getting a wood-burning meat smoker for forever. I want to surprise him and buy him one but I don't know much about smoking meat other than it tastes good. Does anyone have suggestions for which wood smokers are good? I see a number of threads on how to build your own but I would really like to just purchase one. I have seen the Brinkmann Smoke`N Pit Smoke King Deluxe listed on many sites, which is listed as a charcoal/wood burning smoker and grill. However, we already have a very nice, large grill, so I really am just looking for a smoker. I have seen the Brinkmann upright smoker recommended on the Smoking Meat website, but on amazon.com that is only listed as a charcoal smoker. Can anyone tell me if you can use wood in a "charcoal smoker"? Thanks in advance for any advice!!
