BBQGuys® Announces Best BBQ Smokers of 2019

BATON ROUGE, LA — BBQGuys®, the nation’s leading online grilling retailer, has revealed its choices for the Best BBQ Smokers of 2019. After more than 20 years of testing and selling smokers, BBQGuys® is especially qualified to create this list, which includes the top-rated electric smokers, best gas smokers, best charcoal smokers, and the best pellet smokers and Grills. The rankings are further divided by other characteristics like price and design, but every smoker is evaluated based on three main criteria: value, durability, and performance.

For BBQGuys®, value isn’t just about price — our experts also consider features, design, functionality, and quality of materials when determining a smoker’s worth. Those same materials factor into durability rating, while performance is measured by the range of temperature variance, how evenly the smoker distributes heat, and how tightly it’s sealed to retain smoke.

“There are several different kinds of smokers, whether they’re electric vertical smokers or kamado-style smokers,” said Randy Watson, Grillmaster at BBQGuys®. “We took special care with this list because we want to help you make the best decision when it comes to buying one for your home.”

Among the top 10 Best BBQ Smokers of 2019 are models with vertical and offset configurations. The highest-rated smoker, which is produced by industry leader Lynx, is even compatible with a smartphone app.

BBQGuys® ( is an e-commerce business based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, that has offered premium outdoor living products like BBQ grills, outdoor kitchens, patio furniture, and more for the past two decades.
