Types of BBQ Smokers

The most inexpensive and simplest type of a barbeque smoker is the water-smoker. A bowl of water is placed between its tray and cooking racks that accumulate moisture throughout the cooking and smoking process. Another type is the electric-powered barbeque smoker. It is more costly but it doesn’t need you to look after it all the time since they don’t require you to always maintain the fire. It makes the food a little tastier too.

The best, but most expensive type is the log or charcoal burning pit smoker. It is very big and heavy. It also gives you more options because it has excellent thermal control and smoke generation ability. This is also called an “upscale” barbeque smoker.
