I have a big offset I build myself but for smaller cooks I've been thinking about going with an electric. I have a big Chief but even with the hotplate mod I steel can't seem to get over 170°f. So I have been looking and all the different features is getting a bit hard to keep up with. I am leaning towards the mes base model, for price and simplicity. I just want it for a single rack,abts, or a small for me and the wife and the little one. Like I said I have the wood burner for the big cooks. Any help would be great. And I'm trying to stay under 200.
