Hello! My name is Andy and I am from Peoria, IL. I am new to this fantastic hobbie and just learning. I currently have a Brinkman Gourmet electric smoker, but am in the process of moving up. I am leaning towards the Char Griller Super Pro with side fire box. Is there a better product in the $200-250 range? So far, this site has been extremely helpful and I look forward to your help in creating better meat!
