I carry an 18" WSM with me, and set it up on my campsite. It only really puts out smoke for the first hour or so. After that, if you're still getting smoke you've got too much wood in there.

Thanks for all the replies, good to see there are many enthusiastic to what I would call "old fashion" camp food! Way back in '71 had my first smoked trout (back packing in northern NM - true native trout) and hooked ever since on the cooking style.
DW bought a weber smokey mountain smoker for me recently as a BD gift. After the old barrel grill pushed along as a smoker, have to say I love this thing!
Now just have to figure out where to put it along with the kids (Atticus the goofy choc. lab and Clemmy the sweet heart golden). Our old (new to us) 21' class C may end up with the smoker in the tub while travelling. Always enjoy a project, though thinking maybe should have started with something bigger and newer. Ah well, live and learn!! Speaking of learning, attempted a photo attachment, we shall see of well that goes.

In general, I think you'll be fine. But I've been in some cramped campsites where an all day smoker six feet away from a neighbor might not be received real well. As long as you exercise common sense and courtesy and keep an eye on which way the wind's blowing, go for it.

Followed a rig on I-70 eastbound yesterday near KC,MO that was pulling a trailer with what looked like 2 55gal drums and a smoke stack pouring the most wonderful smell! Rolled the windows down and just breathed deep. I followed for 2 exits past my turn when DW realized I missed our turn and the truck was getting warm she clearly stated we are car shopping today not following the food! If she were not in the car I know I would have had some fantastic BBQ yesterday! We did buy a 2011 Honda CRV but I can't eat that!

Had family over, that one got cleaned UP! I'll be doing an encore performance at the Queen Mary in Long Beach on the 4th of July. Follow the smoke to a 1988 Pace Arrow, 34 footer parked next to a
Class B Fiesta.

We just had ham sandwiches last night made from a ham fillet we smoked. Just poured some honey over them, smoked for about eight hours with hickory chips, cooled and put on the slicer.

I had never heard of a ham fillet. Fat is almost non existent. Next time they are on sale I am stocking up.

Final note -
Did some 7 hour spare ribs today, hickory smoke, chile-pepper-garlic-onion rub, used a red chile base bbq sauce on the last hour. Great smoke ring with fall off the bone tender and very moist.
Ok gklehner...you started it Now iam looking for a smoker

Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering for some ribs now. Dang you people. Or actually I should say thank you people. There's a new Famous Dave's in town. Hmmmmmm.

BBQ for the road? We got a Coleman Roadmate, Roadtrip, something like that. Little red thing. Love that little grill, grates will get over 600 degrees. Plenty hot enough for searing cooks good on slow with lid down as well. Routein clean up is pretty easy, so long as you spray it down with cooking oil so the spatters don't stick. Not such easy clean up after doing marinated chicken breast, then grilled pineapple slices with a brown sugar glaze. Folds resonably compact. It got my vote after comparing it to many others, including the very highly rated weber Q.

Y'all have to experience what they call Chicken Barb in Merrimack Valley, MA. It is shredded chicken mixed with lots of mayo. First time I ordered it, I thought a mistake had been made. This girl comes from the South and these Yankees have no clue what real BBQ is.....
