    I just saw an Oklahoma Joe marked down from 499 to 348.  The other smoker I was considering was the 22.5 WSM.  I know for a charcoal smoker, then WSM will be much less tending, but the 2 racks is a bit of a hassle too.  Right now I have ECB, so either one will be a huge step up.  Let me know your opinions please.

    Thanks

    Well I didn't get much feedback, but for the price, I pulled the trigger.  This thing is a monster.  Took 3 of us to get it in the back of the truck.  Now I'll be reading up on mods needed.  It was already assembled, so I'm sure I'll have to do some taking apart and reassembling.

    I bought my Okie Joe this week and there is a pork butt in it right now. Tomorrow I will do ribs and a turkey breast. I LOVE it. It is a great smoker. You'll be happy with it and your price was super.
