I have been using an old school offset fire box texas style smoker for a few years now but i have just had a baby and already have a three year old so the days of sitting tending coals next to a firebox hanging with my old pal jack are going to have to go by the wayside..... anyways i have been looking at the camp chef smoke vault and the masterbuilt xl (id think the larger size would make ribs and briskets a bit better) anywhoo im at a loss on which way to go. I have no problems paying a little extra if im getting something for it and the only thing im really scared of is having one i cant keep cool enough. anyways if anyone has any suggestions or comments it would be swell. Also i have been thinking that using a vertical cab style smoke box id be able to take a stab at some sausage if the lp smokers are capable. Im tempted by the electrics but am worried that when its a snowing id have a hard time getting the temps high enough and the larger output of the propanes would be able to power thru a blizzard. once again thanks for any help anyone could give.
BTW nice to meet ya all
