Chowhound Gift Guide 2018: For the Meat-Obsessed

With legions of devotees, this Weber smoker is considered one of the top outdoor smokers for home use. Its shape ensures even smoke distribution across the racks, and having one rack below the other means you can slide a pot of baked beans under whatever meat/s you might be smoking to catch those precious drippings. Its manageable size means it won’t take up your entire patio or deck (or garage or shed if you need to store it for a while). The Smokey Mountain range (ha, get it?) comes in a few different sizes—the 18” width is the middle and most popular size.
