Drum types are so easy, I'd never want anything else except for more capacity.

No pellet cooker option? That would be my choice.

Can someone explain to me what the acronyms for the different smokers are......wsm, uds, pbc, PB&J, WTF, etc?

many thanks and if it lives somewhere else, my apologies-I'm kinda new here.

My preference, by the way, is my Primo XL--not sure which category it falls in, obviously.

If there was an insulated pellet option my vote would go there.


But, since it's not then I would say WSM/drum option. If I could only have one out of that list there's not much that can beat the versatility/footprint/ ease of fuel storage and flavor wood availability of the WSM/barrel type cookers.

I almost voted crockpot, but then realized it doesn't really get hot enough to do a proper boil on my ribs.
