Your Garden

If you are looking for the best-sized propane smoker for your garden, you have to consider a couple of factors like its price, fuel capacity, and size.

Horizontal Smokers

Horizontal smokers are large, heavy, and stable. They are suitable for smoking large amounts of meat. You can use them if you have a big garden.

Vertical Smokers

Vertical smokers are less in size, but they have better air circulation. They allow smoke to circulate the meat. They are also easy to clean. Most electric smokers are vertical.

If you compare between a vertical and horizontal style smoker, vertical smokers are more versatile and efficient. You can pick this one if the space in your garden is limited.

Wood Smokers

Wood/charcoal smokers don’t break easily. Also, they are the least expensive among all kinds of smokers.

Gas Smokers

These are powered by propane. There’s no need to start a fire manually as you just have to light the burner to do so and to control the temperature. They are slightly more expensive than wood smokers. However, they usually don’t go above $300.00.

Wood and gas smokers are big in size, too. When you buy any of them, make sure that you have enough space in your garden.

Electric Smokers

These are easiest to use. You just have to put some wood into it, set the temperature, and wait for the meat to cook. However, critics often say that food on electric smokers lacks character, which is typical in other smokers. They are more expensive than gas and wood smokers, too. You can buy them at around $500.00.

Pellet Smokers

These resemble wood smokers but only physically. They are digitally controlled with an automatic pellet feed, igniter and circulation fan. They have computerized thermostat that can even be programmed to smoke after some time. If you have fallen trees on your compound, you get an advantage of using pellets. They, however, are most expensive. They run from $500.00 to over $1000.00.
