So what say ye brethren? Save up for a lang 60, or get a pellet (I like the GMC and the new Yoder) and maybe something else, or save money for more meat! I also have given myself the goal to smoke a whole pig/hog. Cant do that on a pellet, unless I go with the whole hog CS smoker but Im not sure on the quality of the product for $2k.
No wonder I have not gone far in life, I could not disagree with your one comment more....
As far as Pellet units, I am a 100% Pellethead, so my rap is going to be so biased I will not boar you with it...
What I will say is, I have owned a CS WholeHog since 2007 Series I...You buy one today, you get Series IV, auger insted of paddlewheel, reconfigured fire box, great heat control (little bit of a pellet hog, but not bad if you are mostly low n slow)...I love my WH, I can't imagine how much happier I would be with a 2011 Series IV...The quality is excellent and you have the versatility of two pits built in for competitions!
It will cook a 150lb Hog easy and will cook for 50 in a blink of an eye!
