Default Why should one own so many different types of smokers?

New to the forum and have been noticing alot of people own a whole variety of smokers. Is it for the type of meat or the kind of fuel that determines what to use? I understand maybe a small family smoker and a larger one for parties. Not wanting to open a can of worms here but is there a general consensus here? E

Different tools for different applications for most people.

I can't bring myself to get rid of my mini WSM i built from a weber smokey joe and tamale pot. It was what I started on. I am holding onto my friend's till he moves out of his apartment and into a place he can use charcoal.

I have my performers for grilling as well as doing pieces of meat that won't fit in my mini.

And then my UDS is for large quantities of meat.

I have two different kinds of smokers, one pellet smoker and two stick burners. The pellet smoker allows me to smoke the bigger cuts of meat, brisket and butts, and still get some sleep.

For the stick burners, I have a big one that I can do a pig in or a lot of food and the small one for just a small family dinner.

Boy, am I with you on that.


ericandcandi, I like having a variety of choices to fit a particular application or amount of meat. And I have some flavor considerations too (for example I like brisket on my BDS better than any other cooker I have, and usually I do fish in a Big Chief box smoker) Weather is also a big factor for me... in the late fall and throughout the winter my Eggs are my go-to cooker.

If your wife is making you ask this question, answer it this way:

"Why do you have so many different pairs of shoes?"

Then duck....

Mainly because life is short. At mid 50's half the folks in the obituary page are younger. Most of the 70 something's don't cook out or get around to well. Jump in with both feet and get yourself happy. How can you tell when you've reached "happy" in the bbq grilling world? When your wife surprises you with a Primo, when she searches Craigslist for grills while your at work, and takes food photos for you or asks you to take a photo if her plate.

It's all good. If an Hibachi gets you where you want to be in patio culinary world, well I recommend you have at least three ;-)

I've got charcoal pits, wood pits, electric pits, and a ceramic cooker. Different meats go on different pits, and each one generates a different flavor profile. The Traeger is great if I absolutely can't spend the time stirring coals/wood (and it let's you sleep), but the best flavor comes from my stick-burner.
And, for the record - I'm not addicted. I can quit any ti---

He who dies with the most toys, WINS!!!! It's like using different tools for different jobs. Yeah an adjustable wrench, hammer and WD-40 will fix most things, but a ratchet wrench or a socket and cutting torch works better.
