Equipment question for you guys.
Last spring I wanted a smoker and I told myself that I would buy a WSM and if I used it like I wanted and still wanted a stick burner later, I would put one on my to-do list. Well I am to that point. I keep a 6-month budget and about to put a offset smoker on it for spring.
I am settled on the Yoder brand, I live in Kansas and that is a local company to me, I like them.
My question is. I have a habit of overbuying things and I “want” the Wichita, but I think the Cheyenne would work just fine. Would like to toss out some of my thoughts and get some feedback
Things I think are important considerations … what am I missing
Cook size- I am single. When I cook I typically cook enough for 2-3 people. 6-10 is a very large crowd for my cooking and I really don't think I have ever had 10 at a gathering.
Equipment size: If I am usually cooking for 2-3, there would be a lot of unused space in the Wichita to heat up which which is wasted energy and more fuel used?
Quality- Is the Wichita better quality as in construction, build or materials? (I think they are the same) or just larger with maybe some more included options? I am huge on getting what I pay for and realize “You get what you pay for”
