    Default Looking for info

    I got a couple hundred dollars burning a hole in my pocket, so I'm thinking of getting a Gas or electric smoker.. I Love my Char broil silver smoker but I want a set it and forget it type smoker for those looonnnnggggg smokes.
    I'm leaning towards gas because I got a LP guy in my area that fills tanks cheap.
    Any suggestions would be great..

    Thanks Bob

    Checking out prices online and I see Sears sells a Kenmore Gas vertical for $160 and it has great reviews.. Anyone have this?
    I may jump on this seeing it's on sale... And the store near me has 3 left.

    Bob, I understand what ya want, but I'd stay away from lp or gas. When we went from lp to charcoal to pellets it was ok. When we ate at the inlaws who still have lp we were surprised. Just our opinion, though.

    Look into a WSM, I've heard many good things about them. Heck, a kettle is good also.

    I've never had elec so I can't say much about it.

    Just my opinion, worth what it cost ya.

    good luck

    Picked up the Kenmore. I went together real easy and it's not a cheap made unit.
    I seasoned it then tossed on some wings for it's first smoke..
    The temp gauge in the door is off + 50 degrees.
    It seems easy to keep a constant temp after playing with it.
    I have never used a water pan before so I'll be playing with spices and Beer in there to see what flavor I can add to what ever I'm smoking.
    For the price it seems like a nice unit..

    Thanks for the info guys.. I was looking to get something local and I have a very limited selection...

    Congrats on the purchase. When you get it fired up again how about some pics and maybe a few thoughts on what you think of it by then. Kinda help out future members who are looking for something like that.

    She's still smoking my wings.. here's a pic from my cell




    I have to get used to using wood chips and the water tray.
    so far I like the unit.. Sturdy, easy to assemble, Maintaining a constant temp is easy, not much smoke leak from the door. I think I'm gonna like this smoker..
    For large smokes I'll still be using my Silver smoker.
    Main reason I got this is for the long smokes, Pork butts and Briskets. I'll be trying one in the next week ot 2.

    I don't know what the actual temp is, but it cooks the way I want it to, so I don't guess it really matters.
