View Full Version : Hello from Central California!

Hello everyone (or anyone that's reading this...)
I'm a fairly new CBJ - 5 comps so far, 2 more next month, that wants to eventually compete.
I'm from Santa Ynez, CA about 30 minutes north of Santa Barbara.
Currently using a UDS I built, an Oklahoma Joe offset, and a <gasp> electric smoker from Home Dept!
I'm looking at 3 different insulated cabinet smokers and trying to decide:
the new Meadow Creek BX50,
the Lone Star Grillz version,
& Abe's Smoker's offering,

Not interested in a BWS as I've heard to many people that use them say that they don't last. Ol Hickory's and Pitmaker's are just too expensive...

Hope to see you soon!

Welcome to the Brethren. I've never used an insulated cabinet smoker so I don't have an opinion on them.

Check out the UDS kit at Big Poppa Smokers, www.bigpoppasmokers.com, or instructions at www.howtoBBQright.com if you haven't already. I did a combination of both for my UDS.
