Just getting started with the whole smoking thing, i am very excited to get going and make some excellent Q! i have read a whole bunch (i think i am still processing a lot of it!) of information from this site already and have decided i would like to get an offset horizontal smoker. I think the larger grill area (versus the verticals) will suit me a little better. I am looking at taking the plunge and getting my first rig. Of course i will love to get a Lang (especially as i am about 45 minutes from where they are based! or so i am to believe) but my budget is a long way away from Lang territory!! I am thinking a budget of about $350 is workable right now, got the keep the missus happy after all!
What would be the "best" rig in this price scale (i understand there is a lot of differing opinions and subjectivity involved in this question)? I have been looking at the BTLE, seems they are pretty popular, and with the mods are more than doable on my budget.Any other suggestions or advice? I have looked on craigslist for a good used one but they all seem either way out of my price range or a little lacking!
Thank you all in advance for any advice!
