Whether you're a professional tailgater, the designated family reunion chef, or simply have a reason to make unreasonably large quantities of smoked food, you would do well to check out the Rolltisserie ($6,700-$7,300). Made entirely of 304 stainless steel and mounted on dedicated trailers, these mammoth smokers combine a fully automatic, gas-fired, wood-smoking oven with a digital temperature control system and over-sized self-basting rotisserie system to cook nearly 200 pounds of food at once, making for an awful lot of happy diners.
Traditional smokers do a great job of imparting flavor to your food, but if you're not careful, you could end up with a Griswold-dry roast by the end. The Meco Stainless Steel Electric Water Smoker ($195) overcomes this by sitting a pan of liquid — water, seasonings, beer, whatever — between the heat and your meat (not your meat), slowly cooking while dispersing smoke and vapor that helps to keep your food moist. This particular model features a 1500 watt heating element, over 300 square inches of cooking surface, a removable thermostat, and wood handles so you don't inadvertently burn your hands, Darkman-style.
