I been reading a lot of old and new threads trying to decide what to get, different brands and such. Reading about issues, troubles, positives, and negatives. This has all left me really confused. LOL! Did my roll call thread, btw. Before I started lurking this forum, I had my mind made up on a 30" MES RF Remote stainless steel, but after coming here I am envisioning maybe a 40" MES Bluetooth and getting an amnps. So I kinda want to see what you veterans would do right now if you had a $1000 total budget, what smoker would you get and what accessories/mods would you do to it right away if you were starting from scratch as a noob.
