Hi! I am wanting to try my hand at smoking this year...probably mostly butts and ribs. I am not looking to spend alot of money on it at this point, at least not until I can decide if it is something I really like and can justify the expense for the better smokers I guess my main question at this point is as far as a decent starter smoker does the brand really matter? From what I'm seeing so far going cheap means I will probably have to mod it. Right now Lowes only has a Master Forge one , and I only saw a display model, Are the cheap Brinkmann's any better?
