    Welcome from the mountains of MC. You have a real dilemma there. I would buy two grills/smokers. For the beach a Weber 26 that you can smoke grill and smoke on. Add the Fireboard, fan and SnS and it smokes almost effortlessly. And when you want burgers it can do that. For the Brooklyn place get a small pellet cooker. I hate to call them smokers as they don't put out nearly the smoke of a kettle but they are set and forget and some like the amount of smoke they put out.

            I've drunk the Kool-Aid: goodbye trial membership, hello Pitcitizenship.

            Even though my last smoking of the year will probably be this coming week. Unless this fine Fellowship of the Smoke Ring can help me figure out what I might get to work on my cold, windy apartment deck yet be unobtrusive enough to not distress my neighbors.

              It's with deepest regret that I'm gonna have to say goodbye, after a year of membership after five years of lurking. I see my membership has auto-renewed today, but I must cancel.

              I can leave the city again . . . but not long enough to get a new smoker. And I don't see how I can start grilling or smoking discreetly on our windy apartment deck. I've loved finally being part of this community, but I can't stay for the sake of the food porn (you're all porn stars!), not if I can't join in the gustatory orgy. I'll rejoin when I can smoke again.

                Welcome, Josh! What part of Brooklyn are you in? I lived for 30 years in Bay Ridge and resided my daughter there. I moved to Queens in 2004 while getting divorced to be able to walk to work. Moved to the Poconos on 2009 when I left my firm and went out in own.

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                Placeholder

                The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                Placeholder

                The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                Placeholder

                The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
