So I have watched bbq pitmasters enough and sure have eaten enough bbq to try it out myself. I have been looking at a few different models. I am looking to keep it sub $200 for a gas vertical smoker. I had kind of decided on the "master forge" from lowes. Seems a good value at $179. I dont mind doing a few mods to make it better. So lets hear what you have to say! Thanks for your help and I look forward to making good use of this site.
