    No fish, no problem.


      Fake news


        Never had any "leftover" fishysmell in my wsm/kettle/gasser


          Also, wouldn't that be true for the oven? Yea, no smoke but if you cook fish in the oven and the next day cook some beef/pork or whatever is the oven contaminated with smell of fish?
          No fish, no problem.


            I’ve never had an issue cooking fish on any of my grills or smokers.


              I must admit, I do get a little beefy hint in my fish


                My cookers only have two words to say about the matter:

                FEED ME! Fish, pork, veggie tables, beefusses, allygator, shrimp makes no differnce, taste no differnce.

                  FireMan It all tastes like chicken, right!

                I have been grilling/smoking fish and everything else on all my cookers for 35 years and I don't taste any connection to previous cooks at all. The wife (with the bionic nose) doesn't taste or smell anything either. I have been living in FL for 22 years and we cook different types of fish and oysters very often. Even something oily like mackerel doesn't leave a trace after I smoke it. Now I do clean all my cookers regularly so that may be the key.


                  Been mostly grilling (and occasionally smoking) salmon and other fish for decades. Never a problem with carryover stinkyness or taste ...

                  Now, reusing oil that's been used for frying fish is another story. Back in my USAF days, there was a roach coach on base that did exactly that ... for everything including fish and BACON . Needless to say, their BLT's were always a little ... "different" ... 🤮 ...

                  I only keep a dedicated cooker for kale because I am certainly not taking any chances that flavour wind up on my meat.

                    I prefer my kale with a silent k.

                    Myself as well, and I can honestly say I have a dedicated cooler for it.

                Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                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.

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

                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.
