I got a Home Depot gift card for 150.00 and a green light to buy whatever smoker I want and all of a sudden I'm having trouble deciding. I was originally planning on buying the Brinkman Smoke n Grill smoker with the offset box but our store just started carrying a vertical Brinkman box smoker for about half the price and it got me wondering which would be better. I have been using an elctric smoker up to this point and have been pretty happy with it but I really want to start working with wood/charcoal. I have a gas grill that we use religously so the grill itself isn't a huge benefit. I am more concerned with which will be easier to maintain consistant higher temps. and give me a better quality smoke. I am never smoking a lot of meat at one time but hope to start using the smoker a lot more this year. Any thoughts on which would be better would be greatly appreciated.
