If there's a pit on the Lang site for $400.00, please let me know so I can order one today.
The WSM is right at 400.00. It is usually available in specialty stores like Ace Hardware or Local HW stores. Not in the big box HW stores. The WSM Mini can be built for around $70.00 if everything is new. Using Craigslist and/or clearance priced Weber Smokey Joe's I built one for about 50.00. It will cook a 10 lb Pork butt or a few half rack of ribs or a small brisket if you are creative. You could cook for ten using 2 WSM minis.
