Anyone I've talked to that uses a pellet smoker really likes them. I never ate anything from one but they get good reviews. You have to watch the cost of the fuel, some report it can get expensive.
For ease of use a Weber Smokey Mountain is one of the most popular smokers around. I use one and can smoke large pieces up to 12 to 14 hours with just one load of charcoal using the minion method.
Hey Rick. I was hoping you would comment.
Hmm, the last time I looked at the Weber it was quite pricey. I see they have a smaller model now that might actually work for me. Still, it's not quite as versatile as the GMG tailgater.
I did look into the cost of pellets. I see it is going to be more expensive than charcoal, but I'm probably not going to do a lot of big smokes where you burn through a lot of pellets.
It does give me something to think about though.
