Well, I finally got wifey to agree on a gravity fed smoker for my bday in 2015. As I'll be turning the big 60, something special I think is called for. So, I've been doing my homework and have narrowed it down to these two smokers. Both have their good points. There's a price differential that I did factor in however, I wonder if in this case, you'll get what you pay for. Both seem to be of a very similar design. Both boast a good amount of insulation which IMO is crucial as I live in a northern state and our winters are both cold and long. My OKJ does great until the temps drop below 50. That's when I cover Joe up and put him to sleep for the winter. So, my question is a simple one: If any of you have some preference, suggestions or advice, I'd love to see them. Both of these smokers come with a hefty price tag so I really need to get this one right. Especially with wifey involved as she is CFO of the house. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Happy Holidays!
