Indoor Smoker recommend?

contemplating an indoor smoker and am looking at these two

Camerons Stainless Steel Stove top

or this one

Nordic Ware Indoor Kettle

I'm sorta leaning towards the kettle style. Think I could put a whole chicken in, rather than have to cut it up...

Anybody got recommendations?

Did you see that CWS recently got an indoor smoker and pressure cooker? She mentions it here, Instant Pot pressure cooker, etc. Yes, it's a bit more expensive, but it really does sound like it's worth a bit more, since it has other uses and it's electric. Also, apparently, it can cold smoke too.

thanks taxy, I did and if I ever would need two of them, that one would certainly be in the running. Actually that post is what got me back on the band wagon again. Had been looking last summer and then it just sort of fizzled out.

It does interest in the multi-uses - but I do have a pressure cooker already and I would rather not use electricity. We have a lot of power failures out here and even though I have the most amazing self-sufficient generator it could and probably would screw up the timing, etc... My gas doesn't need electricity to run.

I'd strongly recommend the Camerons product. I've had one for nearly 20 years and love, love, love it. There have never been any issues, for me, with the size of what was smoked in it.

The recommendation from Camerons regarding over-sized foods is to, instead of using the slide-on lid, tent with heavy-duty foil. I've done that many, many times with 100% success.

I addition to the large Camerons smoker, I have their smaller one that comes in handy doing smaller quantities of veggies or cheese.

thank you Katie! I now remember seeing a You tube where they did just that.
