    Anybody heard or used a Smoke n Fold Aluminum Smoker by Camerons? ONLY reason I was even looking at it is the local outdoors store is having their Grand Re-Opening this weekend and they have them on sale for $49 (reg. $149)...just looks like is might something to try...currently I do my "smoking" on a Weber Genesis gas grill, so I don't even own a real smoker anyway...

    Hmm...interesting.  Never seen anything like it before but for $50 I think I might try it just to have something I can carry around with know in case I'm away from home and get the sudden urge to smoke some meat!  [​IMG]

    scdigger, if you really have a need for a smoker that is portable to take to another location, or you lack storage space, then maybe this might be ok.  However I would save the money and just buy an MES.  Most of us hate doing extra things before we get started or after we are finished with a project, same goes for smoking meat.  We already have to prep the meat, sort of tend the smoke, the clean up afterwards, why add assembling a smoker and tearing down a smoker?  Can you imagine after a few smokes how much gunk will be on those pieces making it difficult to assemble, or it will require extra effort to keep clean.  Most MES owners aside from a quick wipe down only clean the racks and pans, which can be thrown in the dishwasher.


    btw, I have smoked meat on my weber genesis too before buying a smoker.  For pork butt, I used the rotisserie and one burner which I wedge a large chunk of wood between that burners flavorizer bar and the wall of the weber.  I could easily maintain a low 225º.  To put a pork butt on the rotisserie you first have to lace it up like a roast to keep it from falling apart.  My Genesis is old so the burner tubes run from side to side, newer models run front to back.  The old style made having even heat for the rotisserie easy, not sure how I would do it today.

    Thank you very much for the reply...I'm actually on the project list for the welding department at school to build me a smoker...NEXT SUMMER! Yes, my Weber has the burners running front to back, so it is relatively easy to just use the far left one and do the cooking on the right of the grill...but it's still not a real smoker, but does the job.
