    Although I have to admit I have never used that smoker, if I was going to get a charcoal unit in that price range, I would go with a wsm. Just out of curiosity, I did a little looking around and if I found the right smoker it looks like you can get if for cheaper if you decide to go that route. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...6124_200046124

    From what I have seen and read (assuming I am looking at the right thing) I would still say go with a WSM......they are good little units and you can usually find them under $200 with a little looking. Here is a link for everything you ever wanted to know about a wsm if you aren't familiar with them.

    Good luck.

    Yep, that be the one. The web site that I saw it on said 185+shipping. 129 is for sure cheaper! I will do more research on the WSM. Thank you sooo much for your input.

    The cheapest new WSM I've seen is about $209 with free shipping. Still $40 more....I'd still go with the WSM.
