Smokin' Smoker

Smoking seafood and meats, especially while utilizing the gourmet’s gamut of flavored wood chips (from nectarine to Jack Daniels), is more popular than ever. The  Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker smoker,available at Lowe’s (multiple locations; for $299, is considered one of the best charcoal smokers for barbecuers of all skill levels. Two 18.5-inch grates mean 481 square inches of cooking area, while four vents ensure ample air flow, which makes smoking even in windy conditions a breeze.
