I started off
on a Brinkman Cimmaron offset. Like posted above, once you got the hang of it it made some outstanding Q. I once had two butts take 23.5 hours on that thing, and they may have been the best butts I ever cooked.
Since scoring the Worlds Oldest WSM (R) at a
neighbors garage sale for $10, I have been hooked on the WSM, and have turned guys all over Southern Wisconsin onto them.
I compete on 4 of them. (And considering I compete once a year, I have competed well).
I cook for church on them.
I cook for the hell of it on them.
Simply the best pit value dollar for dollar IMO.
