I'm going to be in the market for a new smoker soon. I'm seriously thinking of an offset this time. I'm like 99% sure this is what I want. I have only used verticals so far one being a cheap Brinkman propane and my UDS. I've searched high and low around these parts (northern IL.)but to no avail. I have a budget of 1k or a little more and that would have to include shipping. I want this to be a model with at least 1/4 inch steel. Right now I have my eyes set on a Horizon 20" classic . I called and they told me they would give a 15% discount to IL residents to off set shipping. So this unit shipped to my door will be a tad over a grand. Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
