Anyone who says that you can’t make great bbq in a gas smoker doesn’t know what they’re talking about. Here is a link to a site for users of the Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain smoker.
The company has changed hands, but the smokers are still being made and can be purchased at Walmart, Sam’s, Loews, and (possibly) other places. You might have to look around a bit. Some buyers have resorted to purchasing online and paying shipping charges to get their hands on on one. I’ve been using mine for over a year and have turned out ribs, pulled pork, brisket, etc. that has been declared "way better" than any of the Q-chains around here such as Sonny’s, Woody’s, or Smokey Bones. I’m not saying that it’s as good as it gets, but it is damned good. A big plus is that you don’t have to tend it like a mother hen as it will hold temps within a few degrees for as long as the propane holds out. jmho, pb
"are their any good gas smokers on the market"
What? Gas smokers? ughhh…!
I’ve seen some..but they just don’t look like they would make good Q.
Although…I did see an unbelievable electric smoker that a guy made out of a nurses food card…you know the one’s in hospitals that have all the trays and the flaps on the front. They use them to haul patients their food…
This guy made one out of one of those…used a dryer element as the heatsource in the cooking chamber…built a smoke box on the side where he installed a fan and some small ducts to pump the smoke into the cooking chamber… in the smoke box he put a bucket with hickory shavings in it..and placed an electric charcoal starter in the bucket to make the smoke…..
it was a beautiful set up.
