Default Grill Recommendations

I'm in the market for a new grill and/or smoker and I am on the fence on what I want.....

Currently I have a UDS but thats it...I gave my old gasser to a friend over the summer before we moved from Utah back to Ohio.

I am stuck between just grabbing a Weber Genesis 310 OR since we are moving to TX in 2 wks I could probably convince the wife to up the budget to $1k for a nice smoker from a builder in TX.......

Anybody have any smoker recommendations for around that price range?

Get a Kamado Joe. You won't be disappointed. With a few accessories, should run you around $800.

Um, do you want a new grill, or new smoker -- or both.

Your thread title says grill, so I'll go with that. IMO, there is no finer grill than the trusty old Weber Kettle. Buy one, make lots of good food on it, and leave it to your kids in your will.

As for a smoker, I think the brethren would agree we need more to go on than a price range.

What do you want to smoke, and how much? Do you want to uses charcoal and wood chunks, or burn all wood?

I love the stuff I have, but it may not be what you want/need.

So your looking for one unit that does grilling and smoking? Kumado sounds like a good option. Local Lowe's sells char-broil kumados, but like you said. . Tons of makers here in TX. Lyfe tyme comes to mine with that budget

I highly doubt your gonna find a custom build for a G"note, double that an you'll be scratching the bottom. If I wanted something that will do it all I'd go with a 26" Weber kettle & start saving my nickles for a custom.

With a ceramic cooker,(BGE,Kamado,Akorn) you can grill,smoke or bake.Very versatile cooker.The main drawback is quantity you can cook at one time.It will be fine for most normal sized cooks but they lack if you want to cook for a BIG crowd.If I could have only 1 cooker,it would be a ceramic.

Be like everyone else...have 4 or 5 grills.
Portable--Master forge SS gasser or Coleman Roadtrip LXE, or Camp chef
Hibachi--Cajun Cookware 15" (heavy but sears well) or Lodge Logic
Built in Island gasser--good for rotisserie, quick meals, versatile
Kamado--ceramic charcoal unit--your neighbors will envy you.

If you want one that will both smoke and grill then I would recommend a Yoder. I have the 640 which I love but is slightly over your budget. Maybe the 480 would work for you. It is the ideal grill/smoker for the guy that loves the convenience of gas grill style of cooking where it is super easy to start and cook. No fire building and tending needed. Just press on and start, but get much more flavor than gas because you are cooking with wood pellets.
