Hi, I'm not new to eating smoked foods, but I'm totally new to smoking. I am in the process of deciding what smoker to buy. I'm leaning towards a WSM or new ProBBQ Excel, but I do like the idea of an off-set. The only issue is that I would like to keep the cost below $300, so I can't afford the high quality off-sets like the Horizons. I'm open to all suggestions and advice, since pretty much everyone on here has more experience than I do.
