I've been handy on the grill but want to take my cooking to a new level. I always enjoy food coming out of a smoker so want to begin smoking.. I've had friends recommend two different Smokers/Grills to me the Char-Griller 6719 Series Kamado Charcoal Grill OR Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Charcoal Smoker and Grill... From what I have read both need some mods done in order to control leaking...Having a $300 budget for my first smoker should I pick one of these, if so what one, or should I be looking at something else that is better for a Newbie??? I'm sure once I have ordered the smoker I'll come up with about million other questions, please help me get started!!!
