I think they are decent smokers but I'd be tempted to go to Bass Pro and pick up the 24" wide GOSM I think they are 199 bucks and the extra width is sure nice. Briskets and ribs fit in without cutting them then
I'm with jerry (pineywoods) with this one to. I have a GOSM small unit that is just like the one your looking at and it's a good smoker but the size is the only thing that is a problem. If you have a chance to getthe GOSM big block or even jump up to the Smoke Vault 24" you will be much happier in the long run.
