Hello Nexius. What details should I consider when looking for a backyard smoker? I can't say I like the smokers for sale at home improvement stores. I live in Houston, Tx. Thanks for your feedback.

It really depends on what you are planning to smoke and how much of it you want to smoke. The best advice I can give is to stay away from single sheet construction, and wrought iron/spot welded sheet. Usually a sign of cheap construction with a short life expectancy. You want folded sheet metal with a high temp powder coating, controllable intake and output vanes, and at least 2 thermometers. One for the meat chamber, and one for the fire/smoke generator. Probably the best smoker you can get is one you build yourself after doing some research.
