    I am far from an expert, but do have a Cookshack PG500 and can say that I am very happy with the way it cooks.....

    I just got the Camp Chef SG
    I have only done a couple smokes on it so far but so far the thing is awesome.
    I compared it with a pit boss and I feel it is a lot better quality.
    The other thing nice about the camp chefs you can buy a propane sear box that attaches to the side that reaches up to 900 degrees so you can reverse sear steaks and what not instead of having to do it in a cast iron or your other grill after

    My father in-law has a pit boss and he seems to really enjoy it though.

    I cant comment on the Smoking brothers grill I have never seen one as I only compared pitboss vs camp chef because I was able to get a really hefty 50% off either one :)

    I have a Louisiana Grills smoker made by the same folks that make PitBoss. Some of the Louisiana grills are made right here in the good old US of A. I've only had it a couple months, but the results have pretty darn amazing compared to my old Smokin' It electric smoker. The particular model I have has separate main grill, smoking chamber, and cold smoke chamber.

    All the grills have their proponents as well as their naysayers. As long as the pellet pooper you're looking for has a PID controller, you should be good to go.
