Grill advice [R]

Hey guys, I've been working with a CharGriller 2121 barrel smoker for a few years now, and I love almost everything about it but I'm looking to upgrade to something higher quality.

For those who don't know it's a medium-sized barrel "smoker" with a warming rack and adjustable height fire grate. It has cast iron cooking grates, but I'm thinking of going ceramic for less upkeep. Having an offset hotbox is a big plus, but not really required. Optional rotisserie would be neat.

Here's what I've got now (though they've changed it slightly since I bought mine) https://www.chargriller.com/collections/charcoal-grills/products/super-pro-a-2121-charcoal-grill

Char Griller makes what you have with an offset box as well and also fits pretty much all other critetia. With some mods, it's an amazing smoker and usually pretty cheap to get. https://www.amazon.com/Char-Griller-1224-Smokin-Square-Charcoal/dp/B0009NU5YY

I'm very much enjoying mine and besides repainting the firebox so far maintenance had been minimal. The Charcoal tray serves as a great diffuser for heat. Rotisserie can be popped in too.

Smoker recommendations for different price points? (Would be great if we could get some good options and maybe pin this somewhere?) [R]

Hey y'all, been stalking this community for years now, and finally being out of an apartment, have started up on my most delicious undertaking yet. That said, I've been using QUITE the ghetto setup, and am only just starting in, although I'm getting decent enough results thus far.

I've searched the sub a bit and didn't find a ton of recommendations on good smokers for different price points, and while my craigslist "just risk getting murdered" special worked out okay for now, I'd like to take the next step and spend between $100-200 on an actual smoker (preferably offset from the research I've done).

I was also wondering what the $300-400 and $500+ range would yield, so I'd love to see some options for others that are looking for this information in the future as well as solving my problem right now.

Thanks for all I've learned from here and can't wait to take the next step.

Edit- Kinda surprised by the downvotes... if I could have found this information via FAQ or searches I would have. I'd be happy to help put something together if that'd be helpful...

Look at your local home improvement store. I ran a CharGriller Pro offset, which I got used, for 7 years until it rusted out and I upgraded to a pellet pooper

But, if you want quality without spending a fortune, save your pennies for a Weber. You can bbq on a kettle (as your pics have shown), but the Weber Smokey Mountain is a much beloved backyard smoker

Pellet vs WSM vs Offset? [R]

I was pretty sure I was going to get a WSM, as soon as I've saved up the money, but the more I look around, the more I'm unsure.

I've heard really good things about the pellet smokers: nice wood smoke, and super easy to operate. Seems almost like cheating - is there a catch besides the cost?

I also recall seeing one of the Franklin shows where he's talking about smoking with wood, whereas with the WSM, you're going to mostly be doing charcoal with some chunks (right?). Which leads to ... some kind of offset. There don't seem to be many of those that cost more than the cheapo Brinkmann ones, which I haven't heard good things about. Edit: I meant to say I don't see many that are in between the Brinkmann price range and really expensive ones.

I don't smoke stuff too often, as it takes so much time, so I don't want to spend too much.

At our previous place, I built a cinder block thing that worked out pretty well, although it required a lot of monitoring. We're renting now though, so that's probably not in the cards.

Best ribs and tri-tip I've ever made have come off of this thing. I have a row of fire place bricks near the opening of the fire box, this serves two purposes. 1. keeps direct flame from reaching out into the smoking chamber 2. helps regulate the temp on cold/windy days. I've cooked on everything from Brinkmann's to a custom built 250 gallon reverse-flow trailer rig, to a UDS. I would take ribs off the Char-Griller over any of those any day of the week. I don't have to babysit it as much as I would if I didn't have the bricks in it, but that's something I don't mind doing. Char-Griller

[Question] Best charcoal grill/smoker combo for under 200$? [R]

Hey reddit,

I'm getting a new barbecue grill for my dad, (his current set up is a big round, broken ass weber, sitting on top of a portable weber because it's feet broke off) and well it's time to get him the grill he deserves.

Any smoker/charcoal grill combos that are good that I get get for under two hundred? Thanks! (I'm willing to go up to 300 if we have to go that high.)

(As much as I love the Hank Hill in me, my dad is charcoal-holy.)

I see. I'll look them over and see what I think. Thanks!

What is your opinion on this grill? I was really planning on being simple and just buying a simple barrel smoker/grill.

I plan on getting a BBQ with offset smoker soon. But it looks like it will need a little extra insulation. [R]

If it were me I save up and try to get a better one before spending the time and money trying to make it actually work like it is supposed to. By reading the comments on that website it seems like a cheap piece of crap.

I have had one like this for around 7 years and it works great for 8-12+ hour smokes and is around the same price as the one you are looking at.

Help, need a new grill... [R]

I'm looking at building an outdoor kitchen with dimensional stones. (12x4x8) and a concrete counter top. I'm going to include a bit of storage for firewood and a stereo, other than that pretty simple setup. What does BIFL recommend for built in grills. Some of these prices are nuts, are they worth it?

I'm from Indianapolis--real close to Weber's home state of Illinois, and home to the only other Weber Grill restaurant outside of Chicago--and I've seen a lot of Weber grills, around. My family has always owned Weber grills, and probably always will, because they're great for what we use them for.

Having said that, I now live in Memphis, TN, which is arguably one of the top BBQ capitals of the world. I don't even see Weber grills in the stores, around here. All I ever see are barrel-type grills with chimneys, like this (what is the chimney for? I don't know, but everybody's got one, here), or custom-made huge grills, like this. I occasionally see a Big Green Egg, too.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is that Weber isn't the only name in grills.
