Default How do you guys answer this question?

I would bet that around 8 out of 10 people that find out I cook a lot on my smokers always ask the same question and it usually goes something like this... "If I just want to smoke some ribs or something every once in a while, what kind of smoker would you suggest I get?"

I always start with their price range(which is almost always way too low for what they want), and then move onto how much work they want to put into each cook. I then explain the difference between charcoal, pellets, gas, etc. Usually somewhere in the middle of the second hour of my explanation, I see their eyes glaze over, and by the third or fourth hour, they are openly wishing they hadn't asked and some have even started snoring at this point. Kidding aside, what recommendation do you guys usually give to questions like this?
