Hello all, long time lurker-first time poster. So long story short, I just ended a two year relationship with an abusive 2nd Gen 40"MES. Thankfully, I bought the extended warranty so I'll be receiving either a refund or cabelas store credit for $320ish in the next few weeks. I think I'm done with the electric game at this point. I also already own an 18" WSM and plan on purchasing a BGE in a year or so when I get a deck built. I'm looking to have something easier to work with, hence my interest in propane. I will also be using this smoker for snack sticks and hopefully some sausage at some point so something able to get down low in temp is needed. It needs to be similar in size or larger than my 40" MES because I do like to cook for family and friends and it's also nice to do larger batches of sticks when I butcher a deer. Lastly, if I can use my Cabelas credit that would be a plus but not completely necessary. So what says you guys? Am I looking in the right direction? Would a pellet smoker be a better option than propane? Thanks in advance.
