Stampede. The PID controller, build quality, materials and customer service reputation all at this price point was what did it for me.
Only "regret", if I can even call it that, is that I "should" have gone ahead and bought the Bull, but I have two other smokers, a Kamado Joe and a WSM
, and really don't "need" the extra grill space though it would have been nice to have because this thing does everything those two do, except sear a sous vide steak like the Kamado Joe, and it does it on automatic pilot.
Being able to put a pork shoulder on it at some time between 11:30-midnight, and then turning in for the night and not worrying about a thing, is huge.
