One of our favorite things about Spring is that it signals the beginning of grilling season. Just imagine, you enjoying a great Spring day with some close friends and family members on your deck or backyard patio. The air is filled laughter and a wonderfully smokey scent. Everyone is enjoying your famous sangria and you are receiving, yet, another compliment on your wonderful barbecue! Can you picture it?
Now take a look outside at your current grilling station. Is it time for an upgrade? Curious about investing in a smoker? Are you grill-less? No worries! Below we list just few options for you to consider for the upcoming BBQ season. There are a great number of options for every level of grill master, from novice to “seasoned” pro (just a little bbq humor there).
For starters, check out the video below to learn about the BBQ equipment basics.
The Classic – The Weber Kettle
The Weber Kettle is a great place for beginners to start. This classic mainstay has a lot of fans, many of which who have owned their kettle grill for over 10 years. And just as it was said in the video above, you can smoke your favorite BBQ meats on this grill with a little improvisation.
The Smoker – The Weber Smokey Mountain Vertical Smoker
Another gem from Weber. This pint-sized champ is a wiz at smoking multiple items at once. (see image below) This is a great option for those just starting out as meat smokers. As with many Weber products, this grill is easy to use, easy to clean and very durable. Below these grill images is another short video from Weber loaded with great tips for the first time meat smoker.
The Grilling Gadget – The Masterbuilt Electric Smoker
For the tech savvy grill masters among us, there’s the Masterbuilt Electric Smoker. This is really a modern take on a classic smoker. And because you can add flavored wood chips to a heating unit near the bottom of the smoker, you won’t have to sacrifice that delicious smokey taste we all love. It’s easy to move to and from your deck or patio, has a digital display and built in temperature sensors to help you cook your BBQ just right.
Here is a mouth-watering video of how to make smoked beef brisket in a similar Masterbuilt smoker. Take a look.
