This extra-large capacity smoker has a viewing window, so you can watch your food smoke without opening the door. With easy push-button ignition and gas controls, Master built has made smoking simple.
Masterbuilt 7 In 1 Smoker And GrillThe 7 in 1 design from Masterbuilt is a much more substantial smoker. It comes in at 42 lbs. so it is not the most portable of smokers, but it is a good size. The combined cooking and grilling function on top of the smoking make this an extremely versatile machine, well-made and easy to assemble straight out of the box. It has the essential cool to the touch handles, and comes complete with an aluminium pot to ensure you can use it for anything.

Bradley Propane SmokerOperating on a standard 1 lbs. Propane tank, the Bradley propane smoker is easy to use. There is a control unit that is powered by four AA batteries which allows you to finely control the amount of smoke and the cooking temperature. At 20 lbs. In weight and approximately 2 foot dimensions, the Bradley propane smoker is totally portable so you can take it on trips and holidays, but it offers all the cooking and smoking abilities of a full size Bradley smoker.
Imagine being able to take your smoker fishing, so you can smoke the fish at their absolute freshest. The clever rack and foil tent system makes this the ideal smoker for travel and occasional use, and included is a spare foil tent in case of accidental damage and wear.
Because of the use of this technology, this smoker is extremely easy to dismantle and move and it is extremely convenient to use when out in the wilds. The price on this smoker is small because of its compact size, so it is also a good value way for anyone to get into the world of smoking, and it is without a doubt the most portable smoker I've seen.

Brinkmann 810-5000-0 All-In-One Outdoor CookerBrinkmann offers an excellent comparison with their 810-5000-0 All-In-One outdoor model. It is almost identical to the Masterbuilt in terms of size, weight and features, but it also offers something extra. You not only have the option of gas cooking and smoking, but you can also use charcoal or a combination. Frying or baking, grilling or cooking, this grill will perform.
It features a porcelain enamel water pan so you can both water and dry smoke with both gas and charcoal, making it the most versatile unit we have seen. Up to 50 lbs. of food can be fitted in the smoker, and any serious outdoor chef would be hard pushed to have more cooking options than this. Stay cool handles are a feature as in the Masterbuilt.
Although there is not a propane tank included in this set, all the hose and the regulator are provided along with two grills and a unique dome lid with a temperature indicator to take the guesswork out of smoking and cooking. The same model is available in stainless steel. Learn more about this smoker
Of the three models the closest comparison is between the last two mentioned. Without a doubt they are both excellent units, but the ability to use charcoal as well has sold me on the Brinkmann all-in one. If it was portability and good value that I wanted, then the Bradley model is a hands down winner, and for pure quality, solidity and simplicity the Masterbuilt would be my preference.
