Anyone use a smoker?

I've been thinking of getting a smoker that is portable enough to take with on camping trips. Does anyone use one?

Upright? Barrel? Electric? Propane? Wood chip? Pellet? Charcoal? Any suggestions - or is it a bad idea?

Absolutely!


I have a smaller one that works great. I smoked a brisket for 9-10 hours on less than two 1lb propane bottles.


Mine is a wood chip one, can't remember brand name (off top of my head), but it has two racks and operates on the 1lb propane bottles. Its an upright, and small enough to fit in the front basement where tools and battery are on my 5er.



I've done brisket, bacon wrapped chicken (twice), and used it to heat/cook the ham on Easter.


Love it. Definitely nice to relax at campsite, drink a few beverages of your choice, watch football (or whatever), and just chill.

Smoking is one of my favorite things to do while camping at my seasonal site. However, I’d have to buy a toy hauler if I wanted to take my smoker with me — its massive! Having a smoker (and using it) is sort of like winning the lottery — you make lots of new friends. But that’s okay, because I always have more food than my wife and I could ever eat.

My pellet smoker can also be used as an oven or a grill, so I can use it for anything I want to smoke, bake, roast or grill. Once the temperature gets to 300 degrees, the smoke goes away, so there is no smoke flavor — not even a whiff — when I bake with it. It’s just like an oven in your home.

I am definitely going to follow this thread because I have been looking for the perfect portable pellet smoker for a long time, but I can find nothing that can do everything my current smoker can do.

At home we have an The Char-Griller AKORN® Jr. Kamado grill & smoker, it is small enough to take camping and big enough to cook for 4 at one time.
For smoking it will hold a temp around 200-215

ive got a green mountain grill daniel boone for home. i love the pellet smoker - and surprised honestly by it. i really didnt think i would like it.

im seriously contemplating the davy crockett which is their portable version, but have also been throwing around a mini ceramic kettle.

i think the mini pellet smoker would be more versatile.

Another with the GMG Davey Crockett.

Loved it so much we bought the next size up for the house.

Don’t use the gas grill at home or camping any more, just the smokers. Work great for everything from hot dogs to steaks and smoked anything is just great. Carry buckets with the pellets as well for ease of storage etc.

Also meet more people that way since they stop by to see what you are smoking and checking for samples.

Getting ready to fire up the one at home for some pulled pork. Cheaper cuts of meat come out great when smoked low and slow. So save money that way too.
