We have a number of events and BBQ competitions coming up this summer and needed to increase our capacity to cook a lot of great BBQ! What is really amazing about the Smokey Mountain Cooker (we got two of the 22.5 inch models) is that it can hold 12 slabs of ribs, 4-8 pork shoulders, 3-6 briskets, and even 4 turkeys! I smoke a lot of BBQ on my Chargriller, but to be honest it takes a lot of work keeping it fired at the correct temperature. With the Smokey Mountain Cooker I can fire up a pile of lump charcoal and wood chunks in the bottom and come back 10-12 hours later and to a well maintained and perfect temperature – you can’t beat that.
We came to the decision to buy this particular smoker thanks to The Virtual Weber Bullet website. What a great website it is too – it’s really one of the best BBQ sites I have found. Thanks to the folks at The Virtual Weber Bullet site for helping us make a great decision – we’ll keep you posted on our smoking success! Be sure to follow the Pork Barrel BBQ website for more information on our products.
