For pure taste quality and a delicate eating sensation that falls off the bone, it is not much better than meat cooked slowly in a smoker. These slow machines deliver amazing results on ribs and pulled pork, turkey and salmon. Smokers take the barbecue in the backyard to the next level and make delicious, tender, smoky meat, just like you would find in a grill restaurant. But if you have so many different types of smokers on the market, how do you choose the right one to create your own backyard barbecue contest?
First, you want to consider how much money you want to spend on a smoker. At almost every price point you will find options, from small models with a price of around $ 50 to custom machines that can reach $ 10,000. The right thing for you depends on how much you want to smoke and how many people you want to feed. If you are just starting or just cooking for your family and a few friends, a small smoker is probably enough. If you want to become a real boxing champion or participate in competitions, you need to consider a large smoker who can handle several pieces of meat at the same time.
Now let’s look at the different smoking styles so you can choose the one that best suits your needs.
- Pellet smokers are recommended by many experts and professionals. They work much like a pellet stove and give the pellets controlled to adjust the smoke level and temperature. They are easy to use, easy to clean and deliver great results, but can be very expensive.
- Charcoal smokers, like charcoal grills, use lumps or briquettes for heating. You can get great results with these smokers, but keep an eye on them to make sure the temperature stays constant.
- Gas smokers work with propane and are an easy and inexpensive option. It’s easy to set up a gas smoker and let it do its job. Note, however, that you probably will not reach temperatures below 250 degrees, which may not be suitable for all types of meat.
- Electric smokers heat pieces of wood with an electric coil to produce the smoke effect. These smokers are cheap and easy to use, but should be prepared for a different flavor and produce poor results if you want crispy skins on your meat.
The Weber Smokey Mountain is a popular recommendation for beginners who want to start smoking. This charcoal smoker has a long time and has a proven design with consistent results. If you’re looking for something bigger, consider a vertical upright smoker like the Backwoods Party Model, where you have plenty of room to smoke several pieces of meat at the same time.
