    Hey my Meat smoking friends,

    I need your help to decide what insulated smoker I should get?

    Budget $3K max. Need to min of 3 racks that can hold a full size hotel pan at least 6" apart. 

    So far here is what I am finding, would like some input please?

    A Deep South Smoker the small single chamber one.

    Southern Q's smokers

    Their Limo Jr one.

    and the ASSASSIN 17 GRAVITY-FED INSULATED SMOKER

    Does anyone know someone who has one of these?

    Feedback please. Looking to treat myself to a real nice Christmas present.

    Thanks,

    Tony S.

    Hi Tony,

    I believe you are looking at 3 excellent cookers. Although I don't have direct experience with Deep South or Assassin Smokers, I've never heard or read a bad word about either of them.

    I do own a Southern Q Limo Jr. It's the first gravity fed cooker I've owned, and I love it! I've owned and used many different kinds of smokers over the years, and IMO this is the best pit I've ever owned. Paired with a BBQ Guru temp controller (a match made in heaven IMO), my cooker will easily reach and hold steady temps for as long as I need it to.

    Maybe some owners of the other 2 cookers will weigh in...but IMO you'd be thrilled with any one of the 3 cookers you're considering.

    Good luck! Half the fun is shopping and decidng what you want!
