    Kathryn is 100% correct. With a little extra effort, I managed to put out some really excellent smoked ribs, chickens, ducks, etc., on my gasser before I got a PBC. Here's one discussion of how it's done: http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_tech...ill_setup.html

    The successful argument for pellet poopers in apartments, condos, etc., seems to have been something like "See? It plugs in so it's really an electric ... and no open flames".

    I agree! If no charcoal is allowed I would go pellet.

    Welcome to the Pit! There are still things to be learned for gas cookers.

    Thanks. It's nice to know the gasser can be used for smoking as well. I'll spend some time tonight taking a look at Meathead's instructions.

    rodkeary ,There are folks here who make some pretty tasty food with gassers and with electric smokers, so don't discount them.

    I love using my gasser for most of my non-smoker cooks. Easy peasy. I also have two amazing smokers that use charcoal. Before I got my smokers, I used to do briskets, butts, etc all the time on my gasser, following Meathead's instructions for setting a gas grill up for smoking. Gas grills are pretty versatile, is what I'm saying. Grill Grates are a lifesaver for a gasser--no flareups. Good call on getting those ordered.

    You might want to look into using the A-Maze-N tube for more smoke flavor, if that's what you're looking for. I use it in my gasser when I smoke salmon because I don't want to get fish oils onto the walls of my smokers. Works pretty good.

    Some folks here amp up the smoke flavor in their electric or gas smokers by using a piece of charcoal, as I recall, or with the A-Maze-N tube. Here's a topic that discusses some of that:

    and here's another comment about smoke flavor in a Bradley:

    Welcome to The Pit! You sure come from a beautiful part of the continent.

    Thanks. I'll keep that idea in my hip pocket should I need it. I don't want to rock the boat with the new neighbours just yet. I might just have to invite them over for dinner once I brush up on my skills.

    Welcome to the Pit! I understand that some in your situation have successfully argued for the the use of pellet smokers. You might want to look into that if you have a gas/electric aversion.
