Weber 2820 Smokey Mountain Cooker & Smoker Review

There is nothing better than ribs or chicken that has been smoked to perfection in your own backyard.  Many people pay a great deal of money to purchase smoked meats because they do not have the proper cooker to prepare them at home. The Weber 2820 Smokey Mountain Cooker takes away the difficulty in smoking meats and makes it more cost-effective to have them any time of the year.

Weber 2820 Smokey Mountain Cooker Features

  • Large Cooking Area – Most home smokers are small and do not offer a large cooking area for smoking big quantities of meat at one time.  With the Weber 2820 Smokey Mountain Cooker/Smoker, you do not have to cook each piece of meat separately. You can fit two racks of ribs or a turkey and ham all at the same time. Cooking for a large gathering? Put two or three chickens in the smoker and enjoy the party while they smoke to perfection.
  • Venting – Proper venting is important when smoking meats.  You need the airflow to keep the smoke moving through the meats to cook them evenly. Airflow is also important to keep the charcoal hot and to help it to burn longer.
  • Porcelain Coated – Because the metal is covered in porcelain, there is a lesser chance of the unit corroding or rusting. This means that the cooker/smoker lasts much longer and the porcelain also allows the heat to be distributed evenly throughout the foods that are being smoked. Another benefit to porcelain is that it is much easier to clean than stainless steel or other metals.

There is nothing more succulent than meats that have been slow-smoked. It falls apart and has a flavor that is beyond tasty.  The Weber 2820 Cooker/Smoker is the best option for those who want to have the slow-smoked meats without paying the high prices for it. This smoker/cooker is large enough for a big party and is easy to use and clean.

Reviews of the Weber 2820 Smokey Mountain Cooker & Smoker

“…by far the easiest and best smoker on the smoker. I have never used a smoker before and had a delicious result the very first time…”

“I checked this smoker against the cheaper ones that Lowes and Home Depot sell. The Weber 2820 is made better and is much sturdier than the other smokers. This smoker should last a long time…”
