    Default A new dilema

    Well I was looking at the Char-Griller Dou but have been spending to much cash on the cars. But now I have found the Char-Broil Silver Smoker which is bigger than the Dou but no gas. BUT I caould afford a small gas grill plus the larger silver smoker. So which would you guys suggest?

    There are a few decisions here. One is how much are you going to end up spending? Two how much are you going to be cooking? Three do you have room for two items or more?

    I like my Char-griller Duo but it takes up a lot of horizontal space for sure.

    If you have room for two and need the extra space then the Char-Broil Silver Smoker will be fine. You will need to make some mods to make it more efficient (as with most commercial offsets).

    You may also look at the smoker Okie suggested, it is a bit larger too. Shop around and find your best values before jumping.

    Let us know what you go with.

    I honestly do not use my gasser as much since I got my CG....take that for what it's worth. Food is so much better over lump.

    And add that it takes 10-15 minutes for a gasser to heat up well, and you can hve a good fire going with lump in about the same amount of time.

    I agree with Tim. You can't go wrong with the Smokin Outlaw. Forget the gas.

    You wouldn't want to share a motel room with me then.

    What's that white thing with the hose coming off it?

    The Smokin Outlaw is a stickburner. Just an entry level one. they are tough to beat for under $200.
