Summary: Bought the 14" initially but after we put it together realized it was toooo small for what we int need to smoke. This size is just perfect; can cook two items at once because it has 2 cooking racks. The smoker holds the heat at a very constant temperature with just a few minor adjustments.
Summary: I've been looking at WSM for years and never bought one because they're kinda pricy. However over the last year or so I've gotten into learning about the art of smoking and it's amazing. I bought this so I can fix up my big stick burner and this wsm is unbelievable.
Excerpt: For the price it's good because you can smoke a plenty of food. I own a ceramic kamodo grill that I also smoke in. In comparison the ceramic grill is way more efficient in charcoal consumption. With the WSM be ready to use an 18 lb bag of charcoal in a 16 hour burn such as brisket.
Excerpt: My boyfriend is a 260lb bosybuilder and eats a ton of meat. He wanted one of these, so I got it for his birthday. This smoker is awesome. Just the right size. Seems sturdy and is pleasing to look at. He tried a leg of lamb and corned beef for the first shot. They turned out great.
Pros: Adds Flavor, Durable, Easy To Use, Works Efficiently
