Ok, before you BBQ purists come in and nail me for not using charcoal, I’m doing this because I’m not allowed to use charcoal in the apartment that I’m moving into. This was almost a deal breaker for the apartment (which almost made it a deal breaker for my wife on the marriage) and hence I need to get a gas grill.
I’ve been reading a bit, and apparently some of the gas grills now come with a dedicated burner for smoking, which makes smoking meat rather easy. However, I haven’t seen this feature on any model costing less than $1200, which is more than I’m willing to pay; I’m looking to spend $500 or less.
So, I have multi-questions:
- Anyone know of a gas grill with such a dedicated burner for less cash?
- Anyone succesfully smoking meat without this feature? Say using a regular smoker box or a smoker pouch?
- Anyone recommend a gas smoker?
