I have not posted before on this site, but have got Jeff's receipe, taken advice to buy a 30"MES last spring, and did the ecourse on smoking.
I now want another smoker. These are my two options. I was set on the OK Joe, knowing that I would have to do some modifications to it. I always wanted a offset so I could access the meat easier. My wife's boss just offered me a brand new never used WSM 22" with a few accessories for $200, which retails for $400. The Ok Joe is at Walmart for about $260, I imagine I will need to spend another $100 or so in mods for the Joe.
A few concerns that I have, will I outgrow the WSM - as in not enough room and get bored with cooking on it. I would prefer to use only the top level of the WSM (that is part of the reason I do not like the MES it is harder to baste and check temperatures. I normally will just smoke for 2-6 people. I also do not want a smoker that is the same as what I have just not electric.
Is the Ok Joe more than I need?
How hard is it to access the second level on the WSM?
Should I get a cheap bullet smoker and the OK Joe?
Thanks for your help in advance I look forward to all of your advice even on questions I didn't think of.
