My Weber smoker of 20 yrs finally burned out the bottom. It was a good Smoker. I learned a lot from it. I decided I wanted a smoker that could do more as in two turkeys if need be. Really didn't want to spend almost $800 +. I wanted a barrel style cooker. Not a combo grill, just a smoker. Liked the double drum design and was off and running Three guys I found had good write ups. I liked things about both.

I hope I can do them justice. Read their stuff. They have some great points. Mine is also a no weld design.
