Default Grill Purchase Advice.

Good morning! A few buddies (there will be 3 of us total) and I are going camping in late May. We intend to only eat things that have hooves or gills.
I don't want to bring my OT-Silver because I don't want to take it apart (and this is a great chance to add to my collection).

My question... Should I go with the standard Smokey Joe? If so, gold or silver? Or the Jumbo Joe?

I appreciate all of your thoughts...

Best... MJE

I would suggest the Jumbo Joe as it is a 18.5in grate. Much more cooking area but same portability as the regular smokey joe.

If the JJ has the same height as a Smokey Joe Platinum it'll sit taller than a regular SJ, but that's really only an issue if it's going to be hauled in a car trunk and I'm guessing you'll be driving an SUV/truck or pulling a trailer.

I'll stick my vote in for none of the above. Go with a Weber Go-Anywhere! Gives you the option to do indirect cooking.

If I had to pick from your choices, I'd say a jumbo Joe. Mostly since you can set up indirect on it too with lightly more room for food.

I had the perception that people had trouble keeping WGAs lit/hot? Is that inaccurate?

Check out Brethren Phubar's WGA cook threads. He works magic with his.

The WGA is the was to go I think. It saves on fuel, easy to store and carry and a great overall performer.

Well... This whole WGA idea has muddied my water! I hadn't considered it... It sounds like its a better cooker than the SJ or JJ?
