I am a beginning smoker and I am thinking about getting a propane smoker that could maybe do cold smoking as well. The ones I'm considering are: 1. Masterbuilt 7-in-1: smokes, deep fries, works with charcoal or gas 2. Big Easy 3-in-1 Smoker/Roaster/Infrared Grill 3. Any other model 4. Just get a regular gas grill 5. Forget gas-go with charcoal or electric On one hand, gas could be easier than charcoal or electric, but I'm worried about the fumes from gas, leaks in the gas lines and propane tank, and cleaning out venturis not only for spiders and their webs, but in Mississippi where I live, mosquitoes and their eggs.
