Well to all the masters of the thin blue smoker, i would surely appreciate any suggestions that you might give me towards my new smoker. I currently own and have smoked some fine meats on my CharBroil Electric Smoker. My choice at the time i got that was i did not want to spend hours outside watching it. Well as i soon found out that was not gonna happen, i kept checking the temp and wanted to make sure that i was getting smoke. I am currently thinking of getting a horizontal smoker with side fire box. And since i am Mr. Cheap i have been looking at the CharGriller or the CharBroil American Gourmet Deluxe which can be seen at Smoking Meat Store on page 5. Any helpful suggestions would surely be appreciated, and thanks so much for your time. Bill aka: hopefully one day to be a member of the " Masters of the thin blue smoke."
