Smoking....

Anyone here have a smoker that you haul? I LOVE my smokers at home. There just isn't anything better than fresh smoked Brisket, Prime Rib or Port Butt. I really miss my smokers when we are on the road. My favorite tool....is my Primo Kamado but it would be a little heavy to haul around in a Motorhome. Does anyone have a Kamado they take on the road? OR....does anyone besides me want a smoker at the campsite? If you have one, what do you use? I LOVE to cook....and especially like my smokers! I can't be the ONLY one!

I've seen that Weber! I have a cookshack (electric) and a Primo Kamado that I use at the house and love them both although I feel that the combustion makes a difference that can't be attained with the electric. Do you have to sit on top of that Weber? Does it work well with a long smoke such as for a brisket?

Green Mountain Grils makes a model called the Davy Crockett. It a wood pellet smoker. Itís nickname is the tail gator. It runs on 12v cigarette plug but comes with a 110v adaptor and also 12v alagator clips to attach to a 12v battery. Itís a little on the small side but I can smoke a full rack of ribs or two steaks. When traveling it fits in the storage compartment in my Class A.

I second the vote for this smoker. I carry a small one. Doubles as a grill.

Broil King Keg, it is a double walled insulated metal Kamado type grill. The unique thing is that the model 5000 slides off the wheeled base. They make a receiver hitch attachment that it will slide onto and lock. It comes with a drip pan that allows indirect cooking similar to a plate setter. It also comes with a very practice and useful double rack. It is about the same size as a large Big Green Egg but much lighter. I can move it from its base to the receiver hitch by myself but it is tough more because of the bulk rather than the weight. I'll usually enlist the wife or a neighbor to help transfer it. I have cooked a brisket on it for 21 hours without adding charcoal.

I've looked at the Primo Oval Jr but while we are well below capacity on our rig, the smoker still has to be manageable. I'm big on offset cooking and my primary use would be for smoking low and slow. Putting an expensive ceramic Kamado in my Motorhome makes me a tad bit nervous! The Broil King gets a great review by Meathead on Amazingribs. So does the Smokey Mountain by Weber.

One other question....How are you guys storing your smokers? Specifically, how are you keeping your storage space clean? Besides the obvious cleaning of the smoker after each use, how to you keep the residual gunk from getting all over your storage area? I considered putting IT (whichever it may be) into a plastic large storage bin. Anyone have a better idea?

It's nice to see that there are others who enjoy smoking/BBQ and are taking their skills to the road! I'll bet your storage compartments smell AMAZING!

We carry a Traeger Tailgater with folding legs. It has it's home in one of the sliding trays. We also carry a 2 burner cooktop, a gas grill, a Big Easy infrared, and a couple dutch ovens. Cooking out is an integral part of our travel.
