I have never owned a smoker but fixing to purchase my first offset smoker. I was stuck between the brinkmann trailmaster le and the old country ranch hand. I think I have settled on the old country ranch hand for 299 at academy sports. The box is welded and it looks like it is built a lot better than others at its price. Any advise will help. Thanks.

Hello and welcome from East Texas. This is a great site, lots of information and great people that are willing to throw in their two cents worth on about anything.

Thanks, I have always loved smoked foods and always been interested in how it's done. It's nice to have a forum full of people for help.
