    Hello eveyone!

    I need your advice as to what to do for my first serious smoker. I've had a Weber charcoal BBQ for a number of years that's served me well, but it's time to step up my game. My local dealer has a Yoder loaded Wichita in stock and I'm pretty much sold on it. There's one for sale locally and I'd be saving about $1,000 off of new. It's about a year old and it's been left out all winter and is showing rust around the temp gauges and on the fire box :( If I buy a new one and store it in a shed away from the elements, will it still rust over time from the moisture in the Canadian air? If so, I feel like the used one is the better route if I can't avoid the unavoidable. If not, the I feel the new one is the better route to go. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
