Disadvantages Of Using Offsite Smoker

I have heard so many good recommendations from of my friends to buy an offset smoker. But, I have still not able to keep my mind on it because of some reasons. I used to have an offset smoker in the past and I end up selling it at that time because I need money to spend. The price for this machine is actually not that cheap. Other smokers such as propane could even cheaper and having more feature. If people want to buy it and they really have to think it twice.

Based on my experience, I am going to show you some disadvantages of using an offsite smoker. I do not say the product is bad or you should not buy it, but there are so many people who still do not know much about it and they just buy it. Beside than having so many great advantages, it also has some disadvantages that you have to know. You cannot just simply miss thing because it is going to be very important for you. To make you sure if you are going to get it or not, here are some disadvantages that you are going to get from using it.

Bad Product

This kind of smoker is becoming such a popular product right now because of many reasons. This thing is really great for the companies since they are getting more money from people for their product, but it is actually bad for the consumer. Now there are so many companies are selling of their bad product, but they put it on such high price. The market right now is flooding by this kind of product. Do not expect that your product would last longer since it is harder to pick it now. Only company who has such a good name who still has this great build quality, this case is also a problem since big company always put their product on big price. You are going to find some components such as rust on the material, harder to control the temperature and some breaks on it. You even need to assembly the product when it’s coming to your house. It is tough and you should be careful on choosing it.

High Price

Never imagine that you are going to get the product for under 200 dollars because that is not going to happen. They put their products on such a high price because of some reasons. The size is probably considerably as the main reason. The product is really big and you could put fit so many things on it. No reason to cook it separately since you could do it all once. This is makes the price fly higher and the company cannot make it not happen. The product usually cost for more than 200 dollars as the minimum, but that is not the good one since you are going to miss some things. Any good product usually cost for more than 1000 dollars as a good one. The custom made built could even go higher depending on the feature and components.


It is almost similar to what experience on using charcoal smoker. It takes time to preheat the smoker and could take even for more than 40 minutes to get the stable fire. You cannot just use it as soon as you want since it is not possible. The preheating process is really important for a smoker who needs wood as their fuel. The meat or food would not be cooked completely if you do not do this process. Later, you also have to check the fire frequently since it could go higher or lower all the time. If you want to use it and then just leave it to do your work, then it is not going to be possible.


The product is really that heavy even for the smallest one. This kind of smoker is really suitable if its place on your yard without needed to move it. it is going to be tough to move it even though it has wheels since the weight is more than 100 hundreds pounds. I used to have this one and we need at least three adults to easily move it. Imagine when it is raining, I ever got this situation and we end up all the wet on moving it. I really recommend using electrical smoker if you are looking a lightweight one.


The performance is going to be the number one problem here. First, you are not going able to use it on the rainy days because the wood is going to be wet and your smoker is also going to be wet because it is not covered. Second, using it on the windy weather is pretty tough since the fire could go bigger without you know. It is hard to be controlled on this situation. Third, using it on the cold weather is also not possible because of the temperature issue. You could move it inside your house, but it is not going to be issue since you have to free your space and not easy to be moved.


Like I said before, basically offset smoker is not really recommended to be used indoor. You have to put it on your yard and that is the only choice. You are going to get serious problem if you put it in your house because of the spaces and smoke issue. I could not just imagine how to do it.

Final Thought

That is all of information that you have you know. I am sure that now you have some consideration to think before you have planning to buy it. I personally not prefer to use this one and love to use a portable smoker because of its portability. There are lot of things that need to be considered on buying this machine and you have to think it carefully. Thank you for seeing this article and I hope it would be helpful on you.


Some Tips For Cooking Spicy Foods

I guess most people love this kind of foods. Spicy foods have becoming the number one people choice to make their mood better in eating food. Sometimes the food itself trick us to eat it more and more even though it’s too hot to eat. I personally is very beginner for this case. Last month I tried to start to add some spicy ingredient to my cooking and I was surprised it tastes better than before. From there, I started to do some experiments on cooking spicy foods. I have some tips for you in order to choose the right spicy level for your food.

Learn of Many Kinds Of Different Spices

There are so many different types of spices that you could try. Some of them are even too hot for my tongue to handle and sometimes I have to make some adjustment on it. Learning different kinds of it will lead you on picking the right one for you. The food does not need to be too spicy or not and that is the most obvious reason to learn it.

Try to pick some chile peppers and red pepper. Pick any one that you love and then add it to your cook. See if it’s working well with you, if not then you could start by adding a ginger or even harissa which are not too spicy. It’s good for a beginner and I am sure you are going to love it.

Pick The Right Level

I don’t really suggest you to try some high spicy ingredient such as wasabi if you are beginner. It will never make your food better because it is coming from your taste. Pick anything which is right for your taste as starter and then we could move slowly to the next level.

Serve The Balance Dish

Please don’t make all of the foods are spicy. You also have to prepare some sweet or another type of dish that could balance of its spicy. I guess this most of people are failed to do and lead to some the same kind of taste for different dish.

It might be not easy to learn all of it, but I also trust that it would be easily once you read and understand it slowly. Everything takes a time to be mastered and patient would play important role for this case. Hope you are enjoying seeing of my article.


Top Indian Food That You Have To Try

Many people much not too interested or familiar with Indian food. It’s pretty much common because not all of Asian foods are popular in the world. Some of them are not too popular, but it’s actually taste really great and even better than most of food that I tried before. People are too common with many foods from Japan or Korea until they forget that many countries such as India and Indonesia are also having their own unique taste. I traveled to the Mumbai few months ago and I tried so many great foods there. I am going to show what kind of foods that I taste there.

Butter Chicken

This is the first food that I really want to try. I browsed some facts about it and give my recommendation for it. The mixes of spices with the chicken that have been poured with some yogurt really taste great. It served really special with additional butter and cream on the top of it.

Kakori Kebab

First I thought it would be similar to what I taste on Turkey, but it’s totally really different because it doesn’t look like bread, but they cooked with sauces and slices of lamb. The taste is sweet and the vegetables inside are mixed together to make an unique taste in my mouth.


The food itself is looked like steamy rice, but they add some local ingredient and it taste very spicy and I very much love it. I love spicy food and I suggest it to you if you want to taste some spicy food with rice. This could be your recommendation for its great taste.


Dhokla is steamy cake that made from combination of channa and flour. Their original taste mixed with the modern taste and it doesn’t feel bad at all. They combined it nicely with such a great flavor.

For me it’s such a great experience where I can taste difference of food. I spent most of time there in exploring their culinary and I have to say that India is a really great place for culinary traveling. I only visited some of their cities, but every city should having their own local food and it is different each other. Some of them are great with spicy food, sweet food, dessert and many other things. If you have any time to visit India, then you should try their local food.
