BBQ Buying Guide

I come across a lot of people confused about what kind of BBQ to buy.

Most people think you need a special kind of BBQ for “Smoking”. Smoking can be as simple as just cooking with smoke added, and there are several ways to do that.

The first questions to ask yourself are:

How many people will I be cooking for?

If I am cooking for a crowd, I’ll think about what I provide so it is achievable.

For example, I wouldn’t consider doing Pork Ribs for 20 people, I don’t have enough flat cooking real-estate to achieve that, instead I’ll do Pulled Pork.

So think about how many you will most often be cooking for. (You can always borrow another BBQ for a large event)

What is it that I want to cook?

What do you do most of the time?

If most of your food is Grilled or Roasted, then you only need a dedicated Smoker every now and again.

How much Time do I have for Cooking?

This is a key question for anyone looking at cooking Low N Slow.

Some dedicated Smokers require constant attention, some are set and forget.

Think about this: a Brisket will take anything from 6 hours to 16 to cook and if your Smoker needs you to be there all the time, this could become tedious.

Maybe what you need is something less “Traditional” and a bit more “no-brainer” or Automatic?

What BBQ do I need for Smoking?

If you’ve been bitten by the US style Low N Slow BBQ bug then you want some way of progressing down that path, there are several ways to achieve that.
