smoker at CG?

The DW and I are planning a trip to a local CG and suggested we invite the neighbors to camp with us or at least come out one night for adult beverages and dinner. I have a gas smoker I love to use and I was thinking of dragging it along with us to the CG. Has anyone used a smoker at a CG? If so, has anyone complained about it?

I see people using smokers at CG all the time. The smell to me is "INVITING" and not offensive at all.
I really don't think you will have a problem. Fairly common at campgrounds I visit.
Let me know when you will be "smoking" in Minnesota and I will join you.

Only complaint I've experienced was due to the meat shortage coming off the smoker. My Traeger does attract a few extra visitors but they generally come with beverages. I've learned to smoke a few extra racks at home and heat em up at the CG.

I have thought about bring mine along but never have. I have only seen a few smokers at CGs over the years. I would question why anyone would find it offensive, you are camping and almost everyone has a campfire going. Not much difference between a campfire and a smoker, just your choice of wood. Enjoy and gave us a little feedback on how it turns out.

Why would one guy with a meat smoker be any more offensive than 250 smoky campfires burning green DNR firewood?

I have a tendency to forget the smoker when it's going since it's a long process. My kids know not to touch ithe smoker since it gets hot but I'll have to be mindful of the kids they invite back to our site. Looks like the smoker is going with us on our next outing...thanks for the feedback!

I had several complaints from the campers next to me because of the drifting smoke. I was told I would have to put it out if I couldn't find a place where the smoke didn't bother someone. I had to relocate several times depending on the wind.

How is that traeger working out for you? How do the wood pellets compare in price to other fuels?

Really haven't compared cost of fuels but I don't feel poor after using it. A bag of pellets on sale is about $16 and I get about 20 hours of cook time (no science, just a a WAG). I think the pellet grill is as close to a real wood cooking as you can get.
