I went to the BPS website and they have the Masterbuilt XL propane model for online availability for 179.99 + 14.95 shipping. I also went to the Landmann site to double check some dimensions and the Big Block is conveniently on sale as well for 249.99- the problem is the shipping is $103! Would like to pull the trigger on a bigger smoker, but is the big block $155 better than the masterbuilt? I've owned the small block (3605GD) for about 8 years and have been happy with the quality, but I think it was built by Vermont Castings when I bought it. I bought the 3405 wide body and was not impressed with the build quality and returned it. For you guys that have bought the Masterbuilt, how do you like it? Has anybody owned both?
