I have been smoking for the past 8-10 years on vertical electric and propane smokers but I have always wanted to use an offset smoker for the better flavor and smoke ring. My question is this, there are so many different brands and model and I was looking for all your advice, comments, pros and cons on them. Not looking for a competition rig but something half way decent for weekend smokes. I've seen them from $129 up to $1000's and I do realize that the $129 unit isn't the best option. Thanks for any and all info!!
