Smoke or Bake?

An offset smoker can provide a unique and enhanced flavor experience due to its ability to impart a consistent and flavorful smokiness. It offers precise temperature control, even heat distribution, and the capacity to cook larger batches, making it an excellent choice for infusing your poppers with that authentic smoky essence that many barbecue enthusiasts crave.

Mix up your popper game with this simple, easy and tasty recipe.
