I will never use anything besides a Weber Smokey Mountain! Affordable and excellent temp. control. I believe Weber is coming out with an even bigger version of it next year but it will be pretty pricey!

I built one with a non galvanized metal garbage can (new of course), an electric heating element and some barbeque grating. Look it up on YouTube and search for "GhettoQue". Makes the best chicken and ribs I've ever made. I plan on trying a brisket and pulled pork at some point this spring or summer.

I use a trash can smoker as well. I've never had one problem with it as far as making anyone sick with zinc poisoning as some ppl worry about. Now, I did use an American made trash can from Menard's which I think makes a difference. I've even had a dinner party and smoked a pork loin with my own root beer bbq sauce. Ppl RAVED about it.

Smokers

I had excellent results for years with a Coleman Electric Smoker. It is round, light, with multiple uses possible. I recommend it.

I use a 30 inch Masterbuilt electric smoker, it is set and forget You never need to open door, unless spritzing or wrapping in foil or moving the meat, you add chips through a separate loading system. it has remote, lets you turn on/off, monitor smoker or meat probe temps, also turn on the interior light.

I love this smoker, I would use nothing else.
