FYI, I have been waiting to pull the trigger on a WSM, and this cant be passed up. I really want to join you HBT'ers who own big breen eggs, but I gotta start some where.


Oops if you did not know WSM is Weber Smokey Mountian

IMHO, you can't go wrong with the $40 green smoker from Lowe's. The price is so niyeeece, and it's held up like a champ for me.

I'm a CookShack man, set it and forget it type. Picked it up new on eBay for a less than half of new and came with all the accessories. I have a traeger pellet grill and a older weber gas. Still have my eye on a BGE for making steaks and overflow smoking.


They also have a great smoking forums even if you dont have a cookshack smoker

Those brinkmanns aren't too bad, you just have to modify them. It blows my mind that the WSM is the only upright charcoal smoker on the market that has sufficient vents. It's such and easy fix, you'd think Brinkmann would get with the program. FWIW, I have a WSM, and it's great. Take care of it, and it'll last you 20 years.

Interesting that they state that they're "illegal" on barbecue circuits. I suspect it's closer to an oven than a charcoal or wood-fired smoker.

Wait a minute, those things are only $40?? I guess everyone can forget about my thread on cheap smoking. IMO, $40 is cheap enough!
