    Searched for this and couldn't find anything. obviously a huge price difference. Both have good reviews i'm looking at a used 22.5 wsm for $250 not sure if that's a good price for used. Or go the really cheap route and looking at a masterforge bullet style. Which one would you choose? This is my first smoker.

    for me it would be the WSM.. remember the old saying... "You get what you pay for"... or... "spend the money and cry once"
     
  3. I agree with Ole No 7. Spend the money once and you won't regret it.

    I do not know anything about the Masterforged but switched from a propane smoker this year to a WSM and absolutely love it.  It is all Weber quality and super easy to use.  As mentioned you get what you pay for.

    I took the plunge. Bought a used 22.5 wsm for 225 bucks. Looks pretty good I don't think the guy used it a much.
     
  6. You won't reget it. I look forward to your cooks.

    I recommend the book Low and Slow by Gary Wiviott. If you follow the lessons (and overlook his schtick) you will KNOW your cooker.
