New 'Smoker' looking at Camp Chef Smoke Vault in Condo Building

  1. Hi Everyone,

    New to the forum and thought I'd sign up as I've been mulling over getting a smoker for a while now. I happen to live in a condo/apartment building with natural gas hookups on the patios and it turns out the Wholesale sports down the road sells the Camp Chef units. Since I get my NG as part of my rent it's extra appealing.. I use my BBQ all the time.

    The one question I have is; how bad is the smoke output going to be on this to the neighbors? I'm totally fine with doing some sealing, probably with silicone smoke trim/gasket (like from a fireplace, I don't remember the exact name, but they sell them at Rona/Home Depot/Etc). If I seal it and don't have it cranked on high all the time, is it going to be pretty comparable to a BBQ? That I can most definitely get away with. Even if it compares to a dirty/greasy bbq....

    I know a lot of you are thinking 'who'd complain about smoker smoke?!?! It smells delicious!', I'm right with you on that one guys, but some of the old retirees in the building lack the sense of joviality smoking brings out in the rest of us ;)
    *obvious side note that I don't mean to imply all old retirees are cranky, we've just got one or two kicking around*

    There won't be much smoke if you run it right. I would suggest using an Amazen tube smoker with it.
