considering buying my first backwoods

Postby mjljr13 » Thu Oct 28, 2010 8:02 am

I have got an offset smoker from accadamy sports I've competed with it and have actually done very well but now its time to step up and get something that will help me win. But I'm torn should I go with a backwoods or something like a meadow creek, or lang? I want something big enough to compete on and the backwoods has a lot of accessories that I'm not really sure what they all are. Does anyone have any advice?? Thanks!

Multiple postings on the same subject is not the best way to start off on this forum. I deleted the multiple ones that asked the same thing and the one with nothing but gibberish. Remember that trolls will be squashed here.

If you are actually interested in the Backwoods Smokers:
Yes, they are amazing tools for preparing anything from cheese to prime rib. Even the smallest and least expensive model, the Chubby is used in competition and at home and does a fantastic job in both places.

Welcome to the forum. Remember search is your friend on the site, you can find most any question you have has already been answered. If you don't find your answer ask and you will get an answer.

The only accessory that is really needed is the heat diverter. Casters will most likely be needed depending on the size of the cooker you get and how you want to transport it. They are easily added after you get it and you can save some money doing it yourself.

+1 on the heat diverter.

I really agree with that. Mike should make the heat diverter standard on all the BWS's.
