Christmas Shopping? Some BBQ Smokers for Under $150

There are many types of BBQ smoker available so if you are looking for a great gift for the smoker in your life and shopping on Amazon, here’s a few I can recommend that will ship and arrive before Christmas.

My first smoker was the Masterbuilt 20060416 Charcoal Bullet Smoker …  it’s one of the most affordable ways to begin learning about low & slow BBQ cooking.

  • Great value – 395.4 sq. inches of cooking space
  • Two porcelain coated smoking racks
  • Front-access door makes adding charcoal easy
  • Built-in lid thermometer provides an accurate temperature reading
  • Porcelain-coated charcoal pan and water bowl

Once you get started, you may want to step up to something that offers easier access and separation to the cooking chamber. Offset smokers do just that – by placing a firebox on the side of the cooking area, you can independently retain the proper fire while keeping the meat area free of ash and debris.

Two good choices would be the Char-Broil American Gourmet Offset Smoker, Standard … $62  and the Dyna-Glo DGO1176 BDC-D Charcoal Offset Smoker … $140.  

The Char-Broil is a 3-in-1 combination offset smoker, BBQ & charcoal grill with 290 square inch cooking surface in main chamber and 140 sq. in. cooking surface in firebox chamber if you want to actually use that… It has an adjustable height steel fire grate and a handy clean-out door for easy ash removal with adjustable built-in damper.   I’ve been cooking on a larger version of this for about 2 years now and enjoy it!
