I do have a smaller smoker, cheap brand that I received as a gift from my company and planned to use it camping. Question I have is it ok to smoke while camping? These things toss a lot of smoke, that is going to cross borders for a good bit of the day. I am thinking it may not be the right thing to do in a packed campground. But I really love smoking!

Opinions please!
Take my smoker!
You'll meet a lot of "new" people when you fire up the smoker!
Smoke it and they will come!

If you close it up tight and keep the heat low I don't think the smoke is bothersome. But than again I enjoy it so I'm probably biased.
Some on here will tell you that campfires are a nuisance. Try to be respectful set up so the wind isn't blowing into someone's seating area, offer up some finished product, if that doesn't make them happy so be it.

Between the loud music, or kids allowed to run through sites, or as I experienced the neighbor that is huffing an inch thick cigar that smells like it was dipped in a dead possum, this time I'm going to say they can get over it. Check the conditions, try to set it up downwind and do your thing. Anyone complains toss a slice of brisket at them.

Taking my smoker along with me is one of the biggest things I'm looking forward to this camping season.

I have 3 BGEs. One mini, one mini max and an extra large for the house. I would not cook on anything but a BGE. I have cooked almost anything you can think of on it and it has always been awesome. With the exception of my own cooking errors.
If your having a hard time getting the food to come out tasting better then it is poor seasoning or poor cooking temperature.
It does take some practice to get it right. I have cooked the same receipts on my BGE and on weber grills and the BGE food turned out far superior.
I also have a stumps professional smoker and the BGE is easier to smoke on and the food quality is great.

I have not heard or seen a bad review on the BGE, freinds have one and swear by them. I was not committed to smoking when I bought the weber, wanted to try it. BGE may be in my future and the Weber become the travel unit. With that said I am a weber fan with the gasser, the charcole, the mini smoky Joe at the camper and the SM. I am impressed with the SM and how well it heats, did ribs in -15 C last week and the thing worked like a champ!

What amazes me is how quickly it cooks when grilling. I have only smoked with mine a few times, but thus far it's been great. I'm trying to decide what to smoke on mine next and I'm already planning on getting the XL version to leave permanently at the house.

I even made a cheesecake on mine! Lol!

I am lucky to have a brother who is a BGE dealer. They have demos about twice a month and do everything from pork butt (my favorite on the BGE) to cookies and everything in between. It's no wonder he is one o the largest dealers in the southeast. When you see how well they regulate heat (the key, I'm told) you can see customers (He owns an ACE Hardware, btw) returning to buy one. People plan their Saturdays around these events, and call to find out what they are cooking that day. It's hilarious. Needless to say, people end up buying hardware while they are there, too.

Hey Catseye - where is his shop? Seems like I'm the only one out there who gets crummy results on an egg. I'd like to watch a pro do it so I can learn how.

Seaboard ACE at Seaboard Station in Downtown Raleigh. The next demo that I know of is 4/12 during a vintage motorcycle show, but you can find out when the factory rep will be there by calling. That would be what I would do. There is also a guy at ACE named Josh, he's the store BGE guru. Good luck. BTW, the motorcycle show is Eurobike Raleigh | Italian | British | German | Cafe Check it out.
