So I researched both extensively (cookshack is out) and narrowed down to these two. The Masterbuilt looked good too, but I hate the idea of having to buy something twice/fix heating element/upgrade/modify etc.
As mentioned in the title, I know price comes as the first thing mentioned, but I can get them within < $20 of each other, otherwise the decision would have been made.
I'm probably looking too far into it, but at the same time just want to make sure there isn't a major difference I overlooked.
My main question is what are the actual differences. I know they're nearly clones, but there is guessing to be a few.
Are the heating elements similar enough? Notice one is a 350 watt over 400...
Can one hold slightly more? (the SmokinTex reads larger on their site)
Aware the warranty is 2 yr vs 3 yr as well
Just want to see if there is an actual reason to choose one over the other (customer service looks to be good on both)
Not interested in the other larger models of both brands, just these two.
