I have an electric Gourmet Brinkmann I have used for the past couple of years. It has gotten to the point I am getting custom jobs from board members, friends, etc. I wanted to upgrade and after looking at gas vs electric I still am sticking with electric due to high gas use vs electric. I am leaning towards the Masterbuilt via Sam's Club for total cost of $362.18 Tax, inc. warranty. I think that the next level (SmokinTex, CookShack,) are better but I can't get there from here without spending at least $300 more after shipping to get the same sized capacity. My prefered budget is closer to under $400. Yes I know the new SmkerTaex is $395 but it is half the size plus $30 shipping. Am I correct or am I missing a secret deal somewhere?
