Let’s start first with: which smoker grill should you buy? YouTube knows!
weber smokey mountain cooker
This is the best video we watched when looking for a recommendation on a smoker grill. The top two choices seem to be pretty consistent among bbq enthusiasts for the best smoker for a beginner: the Pit Barrel Cooker and the Weber Smokey Mountain. While both are highly recommended, the Weber Smokey Mountain wins. Plus it looks cooler. Lowes, Ace Hardware, and Home Depot sell the Weber Smoky Mountain Cooker, which is the recommendation from the Mad Scientist BBQ on YouTube, and he seems to know what he’s talking about.
The Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker is available in 3 sizes, and starts around $230.
If you’re a Grand Strand local, you can pick it up at Palmetto Ace Hardware in Pawleys Island.
