My Name is Jay Spence, I'm in Eastern TN...I've got a couple of friends who are great smokers and it is a skill I want to start to learn... I'm in the process of buying my first smoker and have narrowed it down to two different smokers the Char-Griller 6719 Series Kamado Charcoal Grill OR Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Charcoal Smoker and Grill any advice one what I should get??? some people say the Brinkmann is more traditional with the sidebox where the Kamado is more versatile... I'm a beginner so I don't know what way to go...PLEASE HELP!!! I have about a $300 budget so both these are pushing my budget, I do plan to by extra things for these smokers as reviews for both of them seem to say needed some minor adjustments... I've narrowed it down to these two only because my two friends who smoke a lot both use one or the other.. I'm open to others but can't really go over the $300 mark right now...Please help me get started!!!
