A few weeks back, an international club soccer friendly once again came to Charlotte in the form of Chelsea Football Club vs Paris-St Germain. So while we have varying levels of interest in international club soccer, Speedy (less interested) and I (way interested) took the opportunity to tailgate and smoke a couple pork butts and five racks of ribs. We think it was one of our best smokes yet, but unfortunately, we took a calculated risk to leave the smoker overnight only for Speedy to come back in the morning to find that it had been removed from the parking lot (silly bros).
So we turn to you, dear readers, to help us find our next smoker. For your reference, the model we previously had was this Dyna-Glo offset smoker.
What sub-$500 non-gas/non-electric smoker do you recommend? Feel free to leave suggestions with links and reasoning in the comments.
