Hi Everyone! New to the forum, and hoping to tap into the wealth of experience here.
I've been learning to smoke for about 3 years now on a Masterbuilt Dual Fuel Pro (propane / charcoal). It was a cheap way to get into the hobby and now I'm ready to invest in what I hope will be the last smoker I buy for a good long while.
Running the Materbuilt on charcoal required a lot of tending and at times hovering-over to make sure the temps stayed consistent (and some days that was a fun challenge). I'm ready to graduate into something that inherently holds its temps better by design.
I've done my homework and know that the WSM is pretty much the way to go for a quality charcoal smoker and I was ready to pull the trigger on one. As I've been doing my reading though, I'm getting more and more intrigued by the cool factor (and not to mention convenience) of pellet grills, particularly the GMG Daniel Boone.
So for those of you that have used both: Is there a clear advantage of one over the other, or is it more a matter of taste? Do you miss out flavor-wise on a pellet smoker due to lack of charcoal?
