looking to add to my arsinal of smokers

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by bigkauna, Jan 18, 2016.

  1. Hey there my fellow smokers of meats, I'm looking to purchase another smoker. This is what i have now New Braunfel offset firebox smoker, A Big Chief eletric smoker, and a LEM insulated electric smoker. Each of them are used for Different meats and  smoking requirements. I'm leanig toward a Weber 26" kettle since i can smoke and grill with it. I smoke primarly, Jerky,Snack Sticks,Sausages of all kinds,Bacon,Pork anything,Brisket as well as other cuts of beef, and some fish. And just about anything else i find via Jeff's News Letter and this forum. So with that being said, Is there any of you out there that might have a suggestion for me .

    With what you have, sounds like you need the Grill feature of the Weber more than it's smoking ability. So sounds like the 26" is a good way to go...JJ

    The 26" sure has a lot of cooking area.

    A Weber Kettle is hard to beat for versatility.  Sounds like a good option to me.

    Keep leaning toward the Weber until you fall for it. You're right, they can grill and smoke.

    I'm due to get a new one; I gave my old one to a friend when I moved.

    I have a bunch of different smokers and grills including the Weber 26 and I use it to do both. I love it! 26 doesn't seem much bigger than a 22 but it is. It's a beast! You'll love it

    With a Weber you're in the middle ground between grilling and smoking, depending on your method.

    I'm surprised that there isn't more discussion here about that side of smoking that verges on hot and fast grilling.
  9. Thanks for the info,I also thought 26 was a better choice than the 22. And I've also thought about getting a propane smoker in the future.
