I have the Traeger Tailgater. Works great, I put it on the rear bike rack inside a large storage tote so it stays dry going down the road. Can easily get two pork butts on it. It doesnít have all the fancy features the large models have, but is very effective for a camping trip. I get about 6-7hrs on a hooper of pellets at 225-240.

I have a Bradly. Everything fits inside smoker for travel. When on the road it stays in the bathtub. Only con is it uses proprietary wood hockey pucks for smoke. Kinda $$$$

Smoke Tubes

A-MAZE-N SMOKE tube works very, very well in propane and charcoal grills. I use these in my Weber grills at home and at campgrounds.

I have a green mountain pellet grill/smoker that stays with the fifth wheel. Works great.

Someone else mentioned the GMG Trek.

I just about pulled the trigger on an ASMOKE that looked very portable, and I think that it is. In the end, I did a little more investigating, and ended up with a Green Mountain Grill Davy Crocket, now called the Trek.

We use ours all the time when we are camping, and as a smoker, it works very well, and I have ZERO complaints about it. It can bake too, and I have used it for that, but that's not it's forte by any means. If you can raise up whatever you're baking, it works better. And I have used it as a grill once, and it worked good for that. Only have to carry pellets to do it all.

The GMG is heavy, and that's one downfall, but it does work well. It is also 12V powered, so if the power goes out while we're out on the lake, I know that the grill keeps right on going.

As mentioned, Traegger, and others make a "portable" grill as well.

I don't know how much smoking you've done, but that's a whole other topic for discussion, and there are many forums about what's right and wrong there. Smoking is a science and hobby all in and of itself. It's fun when it goes good. It's frustrating when it doesn't...

We have a new ASMOKE 350 pellet smoker grill out on its first trip this week, not worried about how it will cook since we have 3 other Pellet grills at the farm and do most of our grilling on them. My only concern, It is heavy, about 45 pounds

We have the WSM. You mention leaving out the middles section which would leave you with a Smokey Joe. Yes and no, I don't think there would be a place to support a rack and the air hole are on the side rather than the bottom so you wouldn't get the air flow for grilling.

We only use lump charcoal in our smoker. I don't want the chemicals from the briquettes smoking into our meat.

You should be glad you stayed away from Asmoke. Really junk and no where near the performance of GMG. I thought the Trek was lighter than the Davy Crocket. I'm definitely going back to the GMG Trek. I gave my Davy Crocket to my son when I bought the Asmoke. Trying to get him to swap back

We had a 22" Weber Smokey Mountain smoker. It was a great smoker. However, I do not miss the water pan. It was a nasty mess, and I always struggled with where to dump it. We are on septic, and we have to be careful with what we put down the drain. There would always be a huge greasy mess to clean in the sink or toilet, too. If we dumped in the back of our property, we'd have every critter known to man on us. Full disclosure, we keep our equipment and kitchen really clean. The Weber just required a little more after care than I want. But that thing made a mean full-cap brisket! I could hold it at 190-200 forever. It was a lot of fun.

If I get another smoker, it will be an offset barrel. I will look for a heavy-built one, not from a big box store. I get the electric, pellets, and gas, but I enjoy the 14 hour process of mastering the hard woods, the fire, and the low n slow method. We have never traveled with one. If I were to take one camping, I would go with one of these more convenient approaches (electric, pellet, gas).

Just a weber kettle. If I was to open a bbq joint, the slogan would be- if it ain't wet, it's just smoked meat.

I really like bbq, so having grill was a necessity for me I decided to choose little one Smoke Hollow205 here and he is a good buddy.
But it is small, so you can cook only one portion at one time - pay attention if you have a partner.

I have always wanted to learn how to smoke foods. My wife isn't crazy about it but I am. And so are my boys. May have to take a gander into it.

Oh, you used the right word, "learn". Smoking food is a very time consuming hobby. Notice that I said food, and not meat. You can smoke meat for sure, but I've smoked a LOT of other things than meat. Cheese and Jalapeno poppers are a great example!!!

Things are almost always good off the smoker, it's getting that great category off the smoker. It's a journey...

We are thrilled with this Country Smokers brand. We take it on almost every trip. Itís amazing how many other campers will show up for a taste later in the evening after smelling that Hickory smoke all dayÖ

You can make your own bisquettes at a fraction of the cost...
