What Type of Smoker Suits Me?
Do you know how much type a smoker can be? Let me pretend you don’t. So let me give
you a brief introduction to different smoker types. Skip this if you already know about this.
By the name, you know that electric smokers are those types of smokers that uses
electricity to produce heat. The best thing about an electric smoker is “set-it-and-forget-it”
capability. These are the easiest type of smoker to control, so it’s perfect for the beginners
in smoking era.
Pellet smokers produce heat by burning pellets. They are not the cheapest type of smoker,
and not the easiest to control either. But the good things about pellet smokers are they can
prepare very authentic smoky flavored dishes, which are amazing in taste. So, pellet
smokers will be good for those who have at least a little experience in smoking.
I found many people who like the taste of the dishes prepared by charcoal smokers.
Charcoal smokers are cheaper than the pellet ones and not the toughest to use. They
produce heat from charcoals, which are not expensive either. So maintenance cost is pretty
low with charcoal smokers. These are not very tough to handle so will be good for a
beginner to medium-level smokers.
Gas smokers also have that “set-it-and-forget-it” capability in some extent. They’re simpler
in operation and easier to control than pellet or charcoal smoker. Being powered by gas,
they can produce a lot of clean heat, and they leave no ashes, which makes them easier to
clean. These smokers will be good for all, from beginner to experts!

smoky Mountain is the undoubtedly the best charcoal smoker you can buy at this price.
The 22-inch version is priced just under 400$, and there’re other smaller versions too for
lesser price. Though I suggest to buy the bigger model if you can afford because sometimes
you might need to cook for bigger audience than expected.

removable nickel-plated 1/2-inch cooking grates. Whereas the 18-inch model gives 481 sq.

the chance of ash smothering.
