Weber: inventors of the revolutionary kettle grill, this brand has been in the market since 1952 so you can trust they know what they’re doing. Their motto: by grillers for grillers.

As we mentioned before, Weber is a well-regarded brand that guarantees a great build quality so you can be sure your smoker will last a long time.

As a matter of fact, the Weber brand is so sure of their quality that they offer a 10-year warranty with their products. Doesn’t that make you feel at ease?

Their staple smoker is the Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker. It features a porcelain enameled exterior and a heat-resistant nylon handle for safety reasons.

It also features an aluminum vent and fuel door which helps protect this bad boy from rust. A big plus, in my opinion, is the porcelain coated water place since it tenderizes the meat as you smoke it.

It comes in three sizes for you to choose from: 14, 18 and 22 inches. We recommend the 18-inch model since it guarantees an easier overall experience for the price.

This model can maintain a more stable temperature as opposed to the 22 in one, which can get a bit too hot if you’re not careful.
