For ease of use, I love my GOSM gas verticle smoker. Once you get the temp dialed in, it can cook all by itself over night. Yeah the BGE can do that too, but for 500-600 more dollars .

BGE is a great cooker if you have the $$$, but IMHO for ease of use, and $ it's hard to bet Gas. The Drum smokers are cheaper, but you have to deal with charcoal, whcih once you figure it out isn't bad, but can be a pain to master to begin with.

Electric is great also if you have the unit somewhere it can be plugged in and the weather doesn't turn wet. One other issue with Electirc, is if you want to kick the temps up to finish a little faster, some of the electric units don't have the power to really do it, but that is going to depend on the actual smoker.

With much anger, I have to say that my Large Brown Ovum has met it's demise, via an unfortunate accident involving a dog lead and an unaware babysitter...

Needless to say, L.B.O. v2.0 is currently in the works...

well as much as i would have liked to go the high dollar route, i have made a lot of "withdrawals" from the goodwill bank from swmbo for the hobbies i love, so i went cheaper and got a brinkmann smoker and an upgraded thermometer, also read up on some mods to make it perform better. i figured 100 bucks into it even if i dont use it a lot it will pair well with homebrew

anywhere to find good recipes?

build this: The Alton Brown Flower Pot Smoker

I built one and it works amazing! It holds the heat nicely like the egg but without the price tag or the mess of the charcoal.
