Hey all,

First time poster here...hope I'm putting this in the right place.

I'm looking for my first real smoker - been trying to get by with a gas grill and Weber kettle until now (ugh). I ran across this tonight and it looks like this New Braunfels may be a good deal at $50 (??). I thought I wanted a horizontal with a side firebox, but maybe there are advantages to this one? The following two smokers after the New Braunfels are availabe from the same seller at a similar price...

Are there advantages/disadvantages to this vertical orientation? Thanks for any/all opinions on this. If it looks like a good deal I'd rather not lose it..
