Hello Everyone-looking for help deciding on a smoker

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by lisam, Apr 8, 2015.

  1. Hi all!  My name is Lisa and I am from Ontario, Canada.  I have owned a couple of the "top loader" style smokers in the past, both charcoal and electric but am looking to upgrade to a cabinet style (electric) type.  I have experience smoking ribs, fish, poultry and jerky. I have been asking around and have read some customer reviews but I get so overwhelmed when I do that I end up more confused than when I started.  I would like to find a quality smoker and don't mind paying up to $500 if its a good unit.  I am not interested in having to do any modifications, I want something that will suit my needs right out of the box so to speak.  If anyone can point me to existing threads or provide any input at all that will help me make my choice feel free to chime in.  I would really like to make a decision soon as I have been thinking about buying one for a while and just can't seem to decide on which one to get.  Hoping this forum and its members can help me.

  5. Sooooo many options, electric, gas, wood, charcoal ...........

    I have a propane Smoke Vault 24, not as common as some of the other brands but it works very well for me.  It is heavier built then a lot of the mainstream $299 cabinet smokers and the only mod I've done to it was to drill a hole and add a grommet for temp probes.  Not necessary, but it makes things nice and clean.  It maintains temp well, is low maintenance, well built and looks pretty good, too. Just my $.02 to give you an option.
