Question Backwoods vs Spicewine

I'm considering adding a cabinet-style smoker to the arsenal. Anyone care to compare the Spicewine to the Backwoods?

I've never cooked on a Backwoods, but I do love my Spicewine. It is very well made, holds temps like a champ, is very easy to cook on, and cleans up without much problem. Most importantly, the product it turns out is really top notch.

Best of luck in your search/decision.

BTW... Jimmy Brod (Smokin Cracker here on the board) is the SE distributor. He has some he needs to move and has/had some great pricing on them.

What size unit are you considering? BW party vs Small SW? Competitor Vs medium/large SW?

When I was looking the backwoods shelf arrangement did not hold a full sized pan if that matters to you. I've never cooked on a backwoods, but love my Spicewinner in copper blaze!! .........stan

I could say the same, except replace Backwoods with Spicewine and Spicewine with Backwoods.

Smokinit and iwnly (members of this forum) are both Backwoods dealers.

What I'm trying to say is both are great smokers and you will be happy with either. Figure out which one best fits your needs.

Some differences that I can think of:
Backwoods have insulated doors where Spicewines doors are not
Spicewines are made with thicker metal, Backwoods are much lighter
Spicewine smoke come up directly from the smoker
In the Backwoods, the smoke goes to near the top around on 3 sides, then the smoke leaves the smoke chamber near the bottom and up the exhaust

I'm certainly not an expert and couldn't tell you much of the differences; however, I love my Backwoods Fatboy. It holds temps great and turns out amazing Que. I almost feel guilty using it because it's so easy.

That said, I've never met someone who owned either a Spicewine or a Backwoods that that much negative to say about their smokers. You can't go wrong with either one.

Another difference would be color selection Spicewines are your choice
and options Spicewine has the hand truck option and the Diamond Plate front doors option
The Powder Coat option, The Tie down option and the optimal option
Correct me if I am wrong on this :)

Backwoods are great smokers, but from seeing and using both, Spicewines are built better, but allot heavier. And everyone on this site that has met Jay or Randy knows they are very cool guys and will tell you Spicewine , even though they are Mizzuo Tiger fans.

Hey Thom, what is "the optimal option"?

Never heard of it.

Backwoods can be loaded in truck with a couple of strong guys. Spicewine requires a trailer.
