I am new to smoking and looking to buy a wood smoker from wal mart, lowes, or Home Depot and don't really know what I am getting into I really like the barrel type with the offset fire box a lot and watch a lot of vids on YouTube about the mods for them which is ok for me looking for a price range for. 400- 500 I seen this o e at Home Depot called the. RiverGrille Farmer's Charcoal Grill which here's the link to it

Tommy,

I have looked at the Home Depot site and the smoker you are referring to.

There is only one picture of it so it is a little hard to formulate a good answer for you. I am assuming that the fire box is to the right side of the unit and that it has a cover and grate over it where you could also grill food.

Is the fire box built to accommodate wood splits (6" in length) or wood chunks that I think Home Depot sells, like apple, cherry, hickory?

If so, this may be a good starter smoker for you.

When you get the smoker food bug like I did, you need to step up to the next level and purchase a better quality smoker that will easier and more fun to use. This is what I did and I am now going to "move up a notch" as Emeril Lagasse would say and purchase a little larger back yard smoker. I am going to purchase a Lang 48 patio model. I have smoked a lot of butts, turkeys and chicken on two different Lang smokers and really pleased with the quality and performance of their smokers.

Lang does make a smaller model than the one I am looking at that may be something for you to consider when you think the time is right.
