I've pretty much decided to give up on my Landmann GOSM and switch to electric. The GOSM was a nice upgrade from charcoal, but I still have to buy propane and getting the temperature right can be a pain. Plus I don't seem to get enough smoke out of the thing most of the time.
I don't want to spend $300 for something that sits out in the rain most of the year, but I do use it. Mostly for the occasional rack of ribs, batch of jerky or pepperoni, or chicken. There's only the 2 of us, so size isn't that big of a factor.
Having said all that, I'm leaning towards the basic Masterbuilt 30" I can get for $177 at Amazon, but they have an analog version for $149. I've heard more than one complaint about the digital controller giving up on some of these, so I'm wondering if I'm better off with the basic model? It would be nice to set a timer for some of these things!
