Entry Level Offset SMoker?


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'd like to get into smoking and have been looking for an entry level offset smoker. So far on my searches the Landmann Kentucky smoker and Chargriller pro have came up. I'm looking to spend around £200-300 but open to suggestions from you more seasoned smokers (pun intended). 

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum Matty....I started off with the landmann, you may have read the thread on here about the mods that are needed on the Kentucky??.  Either of those two makes will get you up & running....just go for it.

Hi Ice,

Yes I think that was the thread I found on google that lead me here actually! I think I will take the plunge and get myself some of that fire rope and try not to make too much of a hash of it! Stay tuned for more newbie questions 😀

Thanks again

Me again!

The site that I saw the Landmann for sale is now sold out (people getting ready for summer I suppose!) I have found two other smokers at a similar price point on wayfair:

https://www.wayfair.co.uk/garden/pdp/symple-stuff-tennessee-offset-charcoal-smoker-u000653770.html

Does anyone have any views on these, do they seem 'too cheap'? I would assume that the mods carried out on the Landmann Kentucky would apply to these too so maybe I could make them work?

Thanks again.

Thanks again Ice, your google clearly behaves better than mine!

I will get that ordered. Do you remember how much and what stove rope you used? I seem to remember on the other thread that someone mentioned using self adhesive ones rather than use silicon to apply it.

Cheers,

Matt

Deffo self adhesive...👍...not sure on what make of tape but something like this..https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fireplace-Chimney-Self-Adhesive-Resistant-2-5-Metre/dp/B0777RXKZZ/ref=sr_1_8?crid=802GT4FQQECI&dchild=1&keywords=stove+tape+seal&qid=1620465060&sprefix=stove+tape+%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-8

Needs to be around 10mm wide and maybe 3 or 5mm think...this one is 2mm and may not be up to some of the gaps you may find....if I remember right I think you need around 2 packs???

@Icefever Smoker arrives on Thursday and I'm about to order the stove rope, can you recommend a sealant if it is required? Hoping to get it built either this weekend or next and then will try out a test run with no meat just to learn how to control temperature.

 

Cheers

I don't think you'll need one Matty, the stove rope should be all you'll need.
