I found a web site http://www.smokenator.com/ this product turns a kettle grill into a smoker.
has anyone used this product and what are your impressions?

Thanks.

Hi Jim,
I haven't used this setup but it should work really well.
Look at the WSM, also.

It looks like it would cost around $80 including tax and shipping. Does it work?? I don't know.

What I do know is if you have ever used a WSM, you wouldn't go back. I would put the $80 towards a WSM instead if the bank book allows it!

I should receive my Smokenator today or tomorrow. The cherry wood chunks I ordered came yesterday. Hopefully, I will be able to smoke some ribs this weekend.

Yesterday, I used the Smokenator to smoke two slabs of babyback ribs and a chicken.
The Smokenator worked great. The only problem I had was the cherry wood chunks that I purchased from Smokinlicious were a little to big. They wouldn't allow the Kingsford Briquets to pass down below the water pan when the briquets burned down. I had to refill the Smokenator on the one side that wasn't plugged by the big wood chunk.

Now I know for next time, but the ribs and chicken came out moist and tender. I am glad I bought this product. I was thinking of buying a WSM, but now I don't have too.

Jim :D

I just picked on up also. I'm going to smoke some pork loin today. I'll let you all know how it goes.

Well, it certainly worked as advertised! This thing is great. I smoked a dry rubbed pork loin and another loin I stuffed with asparagus, onions, mushrooms, feta cheese and spinach, then wrapped it in bacon. Both turned out perfect. I'm going to try for a turkey in October so I have all summer to practice.

Just bought a Smokenator at Ontario BBQ in Vaughan last week for $59.00. Will test it out next weekend.
Still wanting a WSM though for the future.

The smokenator works well I've had mine for about 6 months, only pain is you need to check about 45min to an hour so you don't run out of water. For mine I use Maple Leaf bricks and wood chip rather than wood chunks, it works pretty good.
I think I'm going to take the plunge and pick up a WSM in the future.

It looks like the WSM is a water smoker, for the price I think I'd get a Masterbuilt electric. I love mine.
