After reading through numerous posts, and having a bit of frustration trying to smoke on the Kettle, I talked my wife into going out to look for a new smoker today. I already looked into getting a Char-Griller and was able to find one for a good price at HEB Plus here in San Antonio for $139 plus a $10 gift card which they let us use as a discount! So it came out to $129! The Smokin' Pro is advertised on the Char-Griller website for $180. Lowes sold the grill and smoke box separate for $185. I think I got a pretty good deal... If anyone has any suggestions for seasoning, mods, etc., I'd like to here them. Also, if anyone has one and would like to let me know how it's been working for them, I'd appreciate it. I can't wait to get this thing up and running so that I can smoke something!!
