*Problem solved* Nothing to see here. I was reading threads from you guys over the past week and made up my mind late last night to purchase a Rec Tec 700 "Bull" today. Well, I'm an idiot and should have hit the order button last night. Yesterday the price was $1158. Today the price is $1498. Now I'm in a predicament because although I like the Rec Tec, $1500 is Yoder YS640 territory. If I'm gonna spend $1800 (with options) on a smoker, I might as well make the leap to a Mak 1 Star. I won't have to pay taxes and they offer free shipping as well. Sorry for the rant guys. I'm just really mad at myself for debating and missing out. Looks like I'll be researching more threads again.
