Offset smoker is one of the machine that you could depend if you want to start your business. Well, any barrel smoker, electrical smoker is considerably realty good, but it is only good for personal usage. I mean if you want to be a guru or starting your business you need something bigger and means for professional usage. There is no way you would able to do it on your electrical smoker and you have to find the best smoker for this case. That is why recommend to use an offset smoker for this case.

This kind of smoker was first introduced by some people in the late of 80 in the Texas. At that time this kind of smoker is pretty famous because of its great functionality. The price for this machine is getting cheaper and cheaper for every year. So, you do not have any reason to miss it. Basically, almost all of offset smoker are made from the similar material and construction. There are lots of great them outside there, but you still need to consider some factors for this case. I have prepared some buying guide for choosing this machine in order to make people able to know it closer and find their own smoker. So, let’s see the guides.


This the first case that you have to know. Budget would making so much different on what kind of smoker that you would get, the material, feature and everything about it. The minimum price for an offset smoker should be for around 200 dollars and the maximum one should be for around 5000 dollars. I do not really suggest you to buy one if its more than 5000 dollars. For me it is too useless because you are not going to find any difference between of it. It is going to be so different if you buy the custom one, the price could go more than 5000 dollars since you are the one who decide for the entire materials and features on it. You could go with this case if you really want a custom one which is suit to your needs.

Never ever afford something that you cannot afford. Choosing the cheap one does not mean you are going to get lower quality. Sometimes there are so many companies put their product with higher price, but they are using the same material and feature that you could find on the similar product with cheap price. The main reason for this case is because of the brand name. They have to put so much of their money on the marketing and that is why the price is bit higher.

Craftsmanship Or Build Quality

There are some things that you have to consider for this case. No matter if you are going to get the cheap one or the premium one, you should check these things. First, check the welds look really great or not, then you also need to check if the handle is strong enough or not. I guess you do not want to easily break it since you are going to use it for years. Then, the last thing that you have to check is the lid. Make sure the firebox seal and the cooking chamber is working well. There is no way to check of this thing until you use it. That is why seeing of your friends using it or checks the internet for review is always recommended. But as long as everything looks okay, then I guess it would work really great. You could notice if the product is good or not from its condition.


If you are going to use it means for business then choosing one with great spaces have to put on your main consideration. Meats are divided into many types and cuts and you have to make sure that you could put everything on it. If you are able to fit everything on it, I guess it would broad of your knowledge on using it. Means you are going to get better inspiration and entertainment from it.

Extra Feature

There is no better thing than getting extra feature on everything we have bought since we already spend much money on it. For this case, some features such as removable drawer, lid, trailer and some other things have to be considered. It would back to your need on decided which one should I get for this case. Do not choose any feature that you do not want. Full your smoker with great feature does not warranty that it would great for you. Sometimes it just takes the place without some reasons.

Choosing one of them would be not that easy. But, I am sure you are going to find one as long as you know more about it. Well, be aware on choosing and happy shopping.
