I guess if you are too lazy to build your own drum smoker, now you can buy one from maverick with a remote thermometer...if you want to fork out $360!!

Interesting... I looked at the Big Drum Smoker brand before I bought my egg. I am sure it does a great job, but I am finished with metal cookers. Something always burns/flakes off and then it rusts and then it needs to be replaced. Love my eggs... :)

Murman - I'd say it's a bit of ECB and a bit of UDS. Looks like a fairly decent smoker and the remote therm is a bonus. Plus it says its vents are sized for a BBQ Guru so that's a nice touch.

QJuju - please keep in mind that this is a smoker and not a kamado cooker so comparing them is like comparing apples to oranges. I really wouldn't expect it to grill a steak the way a BGE can, but it would likely do a good job for large smokes.

So it might be the right tool for the right job for those who need one. No offense intended, but using a BGE for a big, long, slow competition smoke seems to me like using a power drill to hammer nails, or using a Maserati to pull a holiday trailer. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

I couldn't agree more.

True... but an BGE can do both.

None taken... but I couldn't agree less. Folks compete with them all the time and have good success. They will do a wonderful job for long, low, and slow and they wont rust over time.
