GIMME BACK MY BULLETS...


Last month, I discussed the OFFSET HORIZONTAL smokers.  Fairly cheap, easy to use, a great smoker used by both novice and competition cooks.  The CAN MAN gave insight to the ‘cult-like’ UDS following.  There’s something to be said about ‘a man and his can…”  We won’t get into the multiple meanings.

VERTICAL -->> HORIZONTAL
Let’s talk VERTICAL SMOKERS.  Now, you KNOW, I have a new BACKWOODS PARTY.  This is a ‘box or cabinet style’ smoker.  Looks like a safe!  The premise of a vertical smoker is the heat source is on the bottom.  The heat is usually diverted and the temperature is regulated, oftentimes, using a water pan.
BACKWOODS PARTY - notice H2O pan under grates -- fuel source is below the pan
Perhaps, the most common and some say more efficient, is the WEBER VIRTUAL BULLET.  Every ‘griller’ knows about a good WEBER propane grill.  However, a true BBQer hears WEBER and thinks BULLET or KETTLE (I will discuss kettle-type smokers in the future).  You may hear the bullet referenced as a ‘charcoal water pan’ type of smoker.

Honestly, the best source of information on the WEBER BULLET is  http://virtualweberbullet.com/.  This site contains everything you want to know about the WEBER bullet.  Be sure to read the FORUMS to truly get the full picture.

Chris Allingham does a super job explaining the bullet:


Other types of bullets include: BRINKMANN (ECB - El Cheapo Brinkmann), CHAR-BROIL, BRADLEY.

Each brand may require minor ‘modifications’ to increase the fuel efficiency.  AGAIN, we are talking about CHARCOAL AS A FUEL SOURCE.  Yea, yea….I KNOW, propane is SO EASY!!  Here at TELL YOU WHAT we prefer more traditional methods of lo n’ slo.

Check out the different 'bullet-type offerings' - they are a great way to 'get into the game'!!
