Seriously, I love my Weber Kettle but also enjoyed my GOSM. It depends on what you want to do.

OK... Serious time..

Tell us more about how you will use it. Is it just for home, or for competitions. If it's for home, how many people will you cook for most of the time. Also, are you a tinkerer, where a stick burner and feeding the fir will appeal to you, or are you more of a hands-off kind of person?

Finally, What is your budget, and how handy are you with tools?

3 minutes...not bad, but not even close to the record.

Swampeter198, first welcome to our madness and yes their is certain equipment you have to have, as you will find out as you spend some time Q'ing and hanging around here, you have to have ALL of it, Best advise is to get you a grill/smoker you can be comfortable with (Weber 22.5 Kettle) and just start smoking and cooking and learning. This place offers a free education, so pull up a chair open a cold one and sit a spell!

Many of us are still asking that qustion to this day... which is better?

Its like asking Ford - Chevy -Mercedes - Mazda - Toyota.

The technical persuit between different types of smokers.

The easy part is what is the primary purpose? (personal vs. professional)

Your budget range?

Are you looking to tend a fire or need something requiring less hands on maintenance?

And your primary fuel... charcoal, sticks, pellets, gas?


Alot of members have different types just to be a little more well rounded... too.

Are you talking smokers or other equipment to use while the meat is smoking. If the latter here is a short list.

1) Instant read thermometer. Thermopen is the best, Taylor makes a good inexpensive analog.
2) 8" Chefs knife and a boning knife. Forschner is a good brand to start with for a set.
3) Large cutting board. Wood or plastic.
4) Large tongs. Get these from a restaurant supply store.
5) Oven thermometer.

Others will add to this list but this would what I would want to start with.

Peripheral stuff you'll pick up as you go. One thing you can never have enough of: heavy duty aluminum foil.
