Well after looking around and reading everything I can find, I pulled the trigger. I went for the Char Griller Smokin Pro. To me it just seems like the classic style smoker. I'm at work and it is killing me! Its in my car and I cant work on it. I've been planning and reading about all the mods and tips and tricks. I'm going to try a couple of the simple ones before I get crazy. It seems the most commonly agreed upon are the stack vent, thermometer, and baffle. I also bought some sealant for some of the joints. I'm sure I will have questions, so stand by.
