So I have a problem ... I've been smoking for a couple years but really started to get into just last year. I currently have a Char Griller Duo with a side firebox .. a few basic mods but I've decided that I want to up my game so I'm looking for a really good smoker. Now my problem comes from my wife .. someplace back a friend told her to always "buy the best you can afford" .. she applies that to most everything and is convinced it's sound advice. I don't want to tell you how much I spent on her sewing machine .. but she insists that it works better and makes sewing more enjoyable.. so who's to argue?
I started looking and she, being the web crawler she is started to help research .. she came up with the BGE as an all around top unit. I am really most interested in smoking but I admit a pizza or good seared steak would not go unappreciated. I did some looking and find a Kamodo Joe .. from what I can tell is almost a duplicate .. a couple review had them very neck-in-neck each having an advantage in one area or another but not on any huge points ...
The Joe .. at least here in the midwest is a couple hundreds bucks cheaper once I equipment them alike .. the wife thinks I'm being cheap .. I'm just thinking that these two units are some much the same that it;s a oush .. that the diff can buy some add-ons to make the Joe even beter.
I'm wondering what you guys think .. I know many have much more experience than I do and would love to hear any opinions on these two .. I guess including "neither one" .. as long as there is something to back it up ..
Thanks in advance
