Comparing the two right now. Looking at the #2 or #3 in the Smokin-it or the 1400 in the Smokin Tex. Looking for longevity as a priority and temp control, would be nice to get up to 300F for some crisp poultry work every now and then but not required. Done with the whole cheaper ones. Would like to continue to use my Amaz N tray as i love that thing. Read several threads but anyone owned both or good working knowledge of both?
