prosonik wrote: I would personally would disagree about the above statements. I'm not here to throw shade at offsets - I've never used them. However, the classic barrel-style smoker is the Weber Smokey Mountian. It's been around for years and it's a proven winner. I have no idea if the above smoker is any good. From my experience, cheap bbq's make me angry. I would recommend for folks getting into smoking at a very low entry point, to pick up a Weber kettle and then go offset. Best case - they love it and carry on with learning about smoking - worse case, they still have a webber charcoal bbq and they can crank out some amazing food with it. I saw a weber kettle for under $100 clearance in Edmonton a few weeks ago. you can find them used all the time for around that $75-100 mark. Peforma, if your lucky $150-200.

The reason I suggest that, is that on cheap BBQs, the build quality is really bad. The metal is very thin, it's flimsy, and I'm sure the heat retention won't be great or worse it will allow air in causing temp spikes. When it comes to smoking, you want something with a good seal too.

I'm not saying you can get good food out of cheap bbqs - you can. However, can someone NEW to bbq get good food out of it? Do they know how to control the heat? Are they willing to spend some bucks on a decent thermometer?

For anyone getting started at smoking and bbq; I highly recommend https://www.amazon.ca/Meathead-Science- ... 054401846X "Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling"
I'd also recommend getting the cheapest charcoal BBQs to see if you like them. I started out with $20 Master chef bbq from Canadian Tire. It's a pain to work with this little guy. But I enjoy cooking with charcoals, so I just bought myself Weber Performer Delux on marketplace for $180. I am excited to try this out!

For beginners, I'd also recommend get something at $20 or look for smokey joes and see whether you like charcoal BBQs or not. I am just contemplating if I should hoar these two guys or not Face With Tears Of Joy

Any howto video?

Not sure how can I cook it for 12+ hours... Just setup and go or should I check it stove every hour?

Grabbed a round smoker and grill. The tenessee probably gives better smoking, but I kind of prefer the round one for the compact size.
Had seen the tenessee smoker last week for 85$ at my local giant tiger, so these prices are even better.

Thanks op, bought the offset smoker to have fun with it. Expectations are low but for 50 bucks with free ship, almost a no brainer.

I ended up buying both. I won't expect them to last long, but with TLC, they would last a few years I think.
Will switch to Weber if I like them :D

Great find! Upvoted!

Slightly off topic…
If anyone wants to get into smoking and not spend a lot, yet still want good quality… a fair compromise is a weber kettle.
18 inch is $119
22 inch is $159
+ add charcoal baskets for $20
Optional… + add charcoal chimney $20 (for convenience and speed of light coals).

You can make competition style bbq with these easily!

Re-sale value is high because its a name brand, classic, and reputable. Or if you don’t like “smoking”. You can use it like a grill.

The following made with a weber kettle.
Beef ribs
Montreal smoked meat

I started off with a similar round model from Canadian Tire that I paid about the same for. After many successes, I upgraded to a cabinet-style smoker and gave the round smoker to a friend. He continued to use it for 2 or 3 years before finally trashing it.

So it lasted 3-4 seasons and got two of us in to smoking for about $60. Pretty solid IMO.

Check out the Mad Scientist BBQ channel on YouTube. He purchased a cheap offset smoker and had very good results. These are the ones I watched before pulling the trigger.

He has another video on fire management which is super helpful and all of his videos have some really good tips.

Hope this helps.

I don't have any idea if it's any good, but pricewise seems cheaper than what you'd usually pay for since it's on clearance.

I couldn't convince the wife to get any of the previous smoker deals (primarily due to lack of deck space). But for $50...it might be easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. I'll smoke some turkey legs for Thanksgiving and I'm sure all will be forgiven
