It comes in two sizes, the Napoleon Apollo AS300K being the largest. Like the WSM, it is a bullet water smoker, and like the WSM, it is black porcelain coated. Unlike most knockoffs, this unit has a couple of clever design innovations and improvements... Read More

Pit Barrel Junior is a smaller version of the popular Pit Barrel Cooker charcoal smoker. Both Pit Barrels produce delicious results with an ease of use that approaches the “set it and forget it” bliss of digitally controlled pellet smokers. These charcoal burning barrels have a lid on top and a small hole on the bottom and are some of the more impressive, affordable cookers we've tested... Read More

3) Tell us everything we need to know to help such as the type of cooker and thermometer. Dial thermometers are often off by as much as 50°F so if you are not using a good digital thermometer we probably can't help you with time and temp questions. Please read this article about thermometers.
