WSM or Kamado style


I have a Weber Genesis (and love it!) but I am bored with it alone. I want a smoker.

My choices are WSM, Chargriller Kamado, and Kamado Joe.

What say you?

My chargriller kamado was delivered today. Amazon for $298 with free shipping. Been looking at it a while. Hope it performs like I expect

This is what I am thinking. If a kamado style is that good, then I can upgrade later. Mancavemeals youtube have been really good.

I have the WSM and I would personally get the Kamado Joe. I have enjoyed my WSM but the clean up sucks. The water pan is disgusting to clean out after every smoke, even though I line it with heavy duty aluminum foil it is still some clean up. It also does not hold temp like a Kamado and you are going to be burning way more coal. I have been using my Weber Kettle with a Pitmaster iQ hooked up to help control temp and it is better than the WSM.

If I were going with a regular Kamado, I'd go with a Grill Dome. I have a Primo XL and could not be more pleased.

If you want a true smoker get the WSM. I have a BGE and use it as a smoker all the time but its not worth the price if you want to use it only as a smoker.

I have a 22-1/2"WSM and I love it.I have made plenty of great successful smokes on it. It is a smoker especially when paired with a controller like my Digi Q wifi unit.

I have thought about tryoing a Kamando style ceramic style grill but never got around to it. I do want to step up to a Pit Makers of Texas
safe or vault in the future.

If you have the money to make a lifetime grilling and smoking investment. Kamado Joe would be my call. Have mine for over 2 years now. Egg, Primo, Gill Dome are nice as well. KJ from the research I did was just a much better bang for the buck. It was 20% less expensive than the Egg for the same set up. KJ has a new larger cooker now which looks really nice.

Seems like these three nickel and dime you.
A damn cart cost at least $200.

And the other must have accessories appear to be higher than Kamado Joe as well.
