Masterbuilt Extra Wide Propane
I like to entertain, but I don't have the deck space or desire to spend a lot of money on a pro smoker. So far, so good with this thing. It was on sale for $180 CDN. It has a lot of space. I did 8 full St. Louis racks in there the other day and I think can fit another rack or two in there if I choose to cut half racks. It does an okay job keeping heat, as demonstrated by successfully cooking some thighs when the weather was shit and rainy. On full blast it goes over 350 so I might be able to use it during the fall/winter as well. I'm still trying to get a feel for keeping the heat at 225, but I've found I've only needed to go check the temp every 20 mins or so. As with most BBQ's and smokers, the built in thermometer is terribad, but I already have a couple probe thermometers and a thermapen. The fire pan sucked so I just bought a cast iron skillet to hold the wood. The water pan was too small too so I use aluminium roasting pans. So for as little as it cost, I'm very pleased with it so far.
