Surprising, there has been an increasing trend to see many BBQers shifting to smaller smokers. Not that the large ones are bad, but the smaller ones offer one thing that has an edge over the bigger brothers, that is, size.
Smaller means less fuel used, faster for the heat to reach optimal temperature and even controlled distribution of heat around the meat. Also, it makes cleaning so much easier and more convenient.
The size typically holds one or 2 medium sized meat. Enough to feed the whole family of 2 with.
Give them a try the next time you are in the market for smokers.
