My husband started cooking with a smoker during our first year of marriage in 2012. He started with a Big Chief electric smokehouse then he switched over to using a charcoal smoker that was connected to our barbeque. He ended up using that one until basically the entire thing became weathered. If you are not familiar with charcoal barbequing it takes a lot of work to get it lit and then to smoke meat for hours the cooking takes a lot of patience and love to keep the temperature just right! He has spent the last 5+ years getting up throughout the night to add more charcoal and check on the food that was cooking more often than not. I absolutely love that my husband enjoys cooking barbeque style! I feel like it gives this Mama a break in the kitchen and some days that feels so nice!
Now that we have the Pit Boss Series we will never look back! This product makes cooking meat and other things so easy and delicious! Owning the charcoal smoker for a handful of years before upgrading to this automatic pellet fed temperature regulating machine, makes me think that my husband probably learned alot about cooking with smoke doing it mostly by hand before. I would like to add that the pellets used to feed this smoker don't include any chemicals and you know that makes this plant loving mother very happy!
We are hosting Thanksgiving at our home two times this November and being able to load this vertical smoker up with food (it's like a big oven) is going to be just perfect! I have linked the exact smoker we are loving and using! It is electric, available in three sizes and fed with wood pellets. We own the largest of the three. The 7-Series Wood Pellet Vertical Pit Boss Smoker. I actually have found it online for cheaper than we paid for it. Shop here.
When I asked my husband why he chose this smoker he said, "When it comes to a smoker you have to have the vertical style if your pocket book can swing it. You can hang sausage from the top and really cook anything with it. The possibilities are endless with this model." I of course replied with, " Can you make me a pie in this thing?" He smiled and replied, " I can make you more than one pie!"
