I recently retired and am looking for a new hobby. So, since I like to eat, smoking comes to mind. I don't have the patience for charcoal/wood smokers, so I am thinking about a gas smoker. Some are vertical, some horizontal, some use water pans and others don't. None seem to extoll the pros/cons of each, can anyone help me. I'd like to use the information to help me make an informed purchase. Being retired price is a factor since I'd like to stay under $200. Thank You in advance.
