I have been a dedicated Wood/Charcoal smoker man for over 30 yrs. And have no plans to abandon my Brinkman Pit Pro. My brother had bought a Great Outdoors Smoky Mountain gas smoker a couple years ago. He decided he was not into smoking meats, and told me to come get his smoker since he knew I would use it.
I have thought a gas smoker would be alright for those times when the temps are below 30 degrees and the wood smoker is more difficult to maintain a stable temperature.
So am going to get a couple propane tanks and give the gas a try.
Incidently, the Temperature was in the 50's last Saturday, So I smoked a large pork roast(for Pulled Pork and a couple briskets for a church supper Sunday night. That went over very well!
