  1. Hi Everyone,

    My name is Kevin and I'm new to smokin'.
    I have an ECB and I've have moderate results with it.
    I'm in the process of buyin either:
    • Chargriller Smoking Pro- (I drool over it at Lowe's each week)
    • Weber Smokey Mountain- (I just missed one on Craigslist NIB for $150)
    • Pro Q Fromtier- (Can't beat the price)
    Any suggestions for a new guy?
    BTW- this forum is awesum.

    AKA Holy Smokes

  4. Welcome to SMF. Texas Hunter pretty much pegged it. It depends on what you plan to do with it and how much space you have. Also your choice of fuel, ie. propane or coals. Offsets are best with charcoal and wood. Verticles use gas very well. Again, its personal preference for each situation.

    Welcome to the SMF Family, Kevin!

    I checked out pics of the three you're considering. If the pic I'm looking at is correct for the Chargriller Smoking Pro, that's a horizontal smoker with a sidebox, compared to the other two which are vertical smokers, similar to your current ECB.

    Here's my $0.02 logic ... Since your vertical smoker has produced moderate results, why not give the chargriller Pro, a go?

    Good luck with your choice, and happy smoking!
