Choosing a pellet smoker should be a thoughtful and informed purchase. Buying a smoker from the first department store that you
visit is not the best way to go about it.
You should be prepared to spend $1000.00 and up for a decent pellet smoker. Skimping on the main piece of equipment necessary to produce smoked food will only lead to frustration and ultimately a lack of interest in this amazing cooking style.
See "How Pellet Smokers Work" for additional information.
When it comes to pellet smokers, you definitely get what you pay for.
