    Thanks for allowing the introduction!

    Just registered today! Found this site while searching for a new smoker. Would LOVE others feedback for me selection choice going forward. I have a MasterBuilt 40" electric smoker with side smoker as an add on. Ready to replace the entire thing as the touch pad is not weather proof! HUH???? They sent me a replacement and clearly stated....."This unit is not designed to be out in the elements." I asked why they provide a nylon cover.....no response. Classic!

    I am happy with the smoker as it's easy, so here is what I am looking for in my new back yard patio:

    1. Simple
    2. Doesn't require lots of attention while smoking
    3. Large capacity
    4. Fuel doesn't matter but considering a pellet device
    5. Durable
    6. Looking for more of a vertical design instead of horizontal unless convinced otherwise - that's why this is last
    7. Cost - I don't mind spending for quality but am not going to be stupid either

    I just built an outdoor kitchen for my pizza oven so I have space for this.

    Thank you kindly.

    Welcome from Colorado. You mention "large capacity". Can you give a more specific example of what you're thinking?

            Welcome from Minnesota! Not sure what you're leaning toward or your upper and lower cost limits. Lots of good Pellet Grills in a fair price range.

              You mentioned simple, durable, vertical space and pellets. As much as I love my MAK, if in your shoes and based on your criteria, this one would have my full attention.

                  i recently upgraded from a masterbuilt electric smoker to the pit barrel cooker mostly because of the masterbuilt not being weather friendly. The pit barrel cooker is fantastic. it does take a little bit of a leap of faith to just light it and "let it do its thing" and not worry about watching the temperature of the smoker itself but i cant argue with the results i have gotten out of it. I have done everything from cold smoke cheese (using pellets in a tube) , pulled pork, chicken, turkey, pastrami, etc.

                      Welcome to the Pit! Sam6687 suggestion sounds like a good or a Weber Smokey Mountain. I cooked on a cheap bullet smoker for years with great success, but It required adding fuel on 8 hour plus cooks. Currently I cook on a Big Green Egg which can take 12 cooks unattended, but that might be out of your budget.
