    Default Best Bee Smoker

    Any insight on what the best bee smoker is. Mine was destroyed, and I need to purchase a new one so I thought I should buy a good one.

    I love the Rauchboy but I don’t know where to find them right now. I do like the tall Dadant ones.

    My 4X7 Dadant with no shield is almost as good as the old woodsman of the same size you cant get any more. All you need.

    I have the large Mann Lake and it works just fine.

    My mentor has a BetterBee, now that’s a smoker.

    I’m a tool guy, and the quality is really nice. Insulated container, and the lid feels more robust than the Mann Lake.

    They are all around the same money; if mine gets stolen or lost, the BetterBee is the one to get.

    The Mann Lake I have now I’m sure will last years, so to buy another would be a waste right now.

    BetterBee for sure
