Hey guys well first of all thank you guys for allowing me in this great forum. I've been into bbq for a while but decided to step up the game and considering purchasing a smoker, and now that I been searching I noticed that there are so many and Im getting confused, honestly I would like the old school one due to the flavor but I cant see myself keeping a temperature on that smoker it just seems to hard so I decided to kinda make a list of the smokers I have in mind and maybe you guys could help me choose the right one. The main things I'm looking into is durability, capacity for feeding up to 8-12 people and that smoky flavor Here is my list and i hope you guys and gals could help me thank you!!!! 1. Masterbuilt 40" electrical 2. Bradley Digital 4 or 6 Rack 3.Smoke Vault 24" 4. Smoke Hollow 44" 5. Green Mountain Jim Bowie or daniel boone (if its worth it I will save the extra money) have a great day people.
