I recently bought a GMG Jim Bowie and it had a broken weld so I got it replaced. The second grill had too many spacers in one of its legs which made the whole unit rock. GMG is sending me a new leg to fix the problem. While waiting for the leg to arrive, I went looking again at the Mak 2 Star General. I'm considering taking back the GMG and dropping down the money for the Mak. $2k difference, though. I'm wondering if it's really worth it? Is there a significant performance difference? Longevity? Most of the time, I'm just smoking for a family of four. Our house, though, hosts a lot of neighborhood parties so I'll need the room in the smoker. Thanks in advance for any advice offered!
