With so many options for smokers out there, it can seem impossible to figure out which one is right for you.
Should you get a reverse flow smoker or an offset smoker? What about a drum cooker? What’s a gravity feed, and is it right for you? Will you DIY it or buy a smoker ready-made? When you’re just starting out in the world of serious BBQ, the sheer amount of options can be totally overwhelming.
Maybe all you know right now is that your current setup isn’t getting you the results you crave. Your brisket is good, but it’s not amazing. Or you’re tired of buying endless amounts of wood pellets, or feeling like you just haven’t quite mastered your fire.
I hear these complaints from people all the time… and all they really need is a little nudge in the right direction. So I came up with something I call the APPLE principle that will help you figure out the best smoker that fits your wants, your needs, your lifestyle and your budget, so you can start churning out the best darn BBQ you’ve ever made.
