Hi All I'm in the market to up grade from my 1 yr old vertical electric smoker to a charcoal one.. One with a side box/horizontal offset. But there are soooo many choices Brinkman/Charbroil/Char Griller. How does one decide which is best? I don't cook/smoke for a lot of people, just me and my wife. Don't know how much I would use the smoker in the winter months here in New Jersey. I've been reading an reading about the different models, it's making me crazy..I do have a few Home depots and Lowe's close to me, been to them but, most models are NOT on display. Any help in sorting this maze out will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan PS I don't have many tools for some of mods needed.
