Thats sort of where I am. Even the kettles can be found cheap on CL, especially here in a military town.
They always seem to pop up in droves when I don't have money though.
I appreciate everyone's input. Sounds like the Akorn is the way to go. Other than the bottom vent airleak (which frankly, I am not worried about) I haven't found a bad review.
Picking it up Friday after work, season it friday night, so it is ready for a Pork shoulder on Saturday.
