    Pepper Shrimp Boats - smoker needed!

    I made up some of the bacon wrapped shrimp cream cheese red peppers and put them in the freezer. Want to buy a smoker today. Local options include Wally World and Home Depot. Want a small electric smoker to run outside. It needs to be small to store in the chariot.

    It will be hard to wait, but I am willing to order on-line.

    Suggestions?

    Carol are you looking for a low temp smoker or one that cooks makes a big difference. I had a lil chief smoker that was the low temp variaty and it worked well for smoking fish etc but it was more of a smoker/dehydrater. wouldn't get hot enough for actual cooking never got above say 150.

    Sounds like what I need is a smoker that cooks. Thanks, Don.

    Oh, and it gets hot enough to cook poultry even. Kind of like a little outdoor oven you can light a fire in.

    I started with a Brinkmann charcoal smoker many years ago. It's the round one with a bowl of water above the heat source and two cooking racks. The electric version is only about $80. I did all kinds of meats on it: brisket, ribs, turkeys, chicken wings, etc. I graduated to larger smokers and now have an Oklahoma Joe Longhorn Offset Smoker that I use for the afore-mentioned stuff as well as fish. There are times I'd like to have a Brinkmann when I just want a small quantity of stuff, though!

    That's the one, Don. I've read a little about the electric version and it seems it depends on the person using it as to what the temperature can be. You can add more lava rock than comes with it to make the temperature more constant. A dimmer could be added in the electric cord, if necessary. On my charcoal unit, I opened a side door or tipped the top to adjust the cooking speed.
