Id like to get a Smoker for my hubby cakes, and I need some advice!

I have found 3 smoker/grills and I wanted to make sure I am getting the best one for the money!

 

Walmart has one for 158.00 and the reviews are great

Home Depot has 2 different kind

it seems like the cheaper one has more benefits as far as warranty and return.

Please give me your advice I want to get a GOOD product :)

Thanks

On the low end, make sure there is a door to add water and charcoal after it is fired up and going. And get the cheapest one. Throw it away when it wears out. Generally the water pan will spring a leak before the rest rusts out.

 

Or for the high end, get a green egg. Much more $$$$ but it is a much more fine tuned piece of equipment and will last forever.

 

I get 4 to 5 years out of the $50 units, but I have promised myself a green egg someday,

We have a regular propane grill from Sears, and it's about 5+ yrs old. It's NOT rusty, it's just faded ont he top. It has been covered up pretty much but, I have noticed the cover is now dry rotted and needes to be replaced. Once, I wanted to grill out and went out to open the grill, and found a fairly big birds nest with about 5 eggs in it. This was when hubby was out of town working. I changed my mind and closed up the grill and walked away. I think I went to Subway. We have a Big Green Egg and we love it.
