Need New smoker
I just discovered this forum a week ago and now looking for a new smoker. Im in the Pittsburgh area and can't find a drum to build my own so what is the best for under $400.00?

A wsm

No drums in the steel city!.? A WSM is a great choice.

+1 on the WSM (Weber Smokey Mountain)

BTW, I lived in Mount Lebanon for a few years. Where are you?

Either size is just about where you need it pricewise.

Yeh I have to agree with the WSM. Sure it costs a little but well worth it.

Welcome to the forum. Another vote for the Weber Smokey Mountain.:thumb:

WSM is a good choice for a beginner cooker. How many people are you generally going to be cooking for? Is this going to serve as a grill too, or just a smoker? Need it to be portable?

Count me in for the WSM! Love mine and will own a 22" to go with it... someday.

Big_Alvin 10-04-2012 04:00 PM

agree with all of the above, go with the 22" WSM. i started with the chargrillers and made all the modifications to them but hardly use them now that i got the WSM's. great smokers.

Sombody got to have a drum
My vote. Uds. Save some $ for meat..... wood, charcoal,lump.
If you got 400 heck you could order a brand new stainless & make us all jealous. Heck you have weber lid ,2 grates,temp control. And I hear some say they like their uds better. Cause it holds temp better.

Another vote for the WSM.

Usually cooking for about 10 people and it doesn't need to be portable. I heard that the 22wsm is hard to maintain a temp under 275 is that true and thanks for all the responses.

Under 275 is over rated either way
