FAQ Subject: Offset vs bullet smokers

Hi Smoky

I enjoy your web site, and frequently consult your book, but I have so far been unable to find the answer to one question. That is, if you had no plans for q'ing a whole hog, what is the advantage of an offset pit vs a bullet like the WSM? I notice most of the "purists" tend to advocate offsets like those made by Klose or Pitts & Spitts. I am currently shopping for something to replace my bottom of the line NB, and was told by a retailer who sells both styles, that a WSM will hold as much or more food, use less fuel, and is capable of putting out comparable products as a 20 x 42 offset. And the WSM is obviously much less of an investment. What's your view? Thanks for your help.

Hi Bill,

You got it wrong: purists, like myself, know that cooking directly over the coals is the best possible way to cook. The sidewinder is easier to transport. If I were looking for a grill right now, I would take the CharBroil 900. They revived an old, proven design that can do it all and has over 475 square inches of cooking surface and priced for less than $200.00.

Have fun,
