Trying to decide between a gravity fed "assassin" or manual fed "backwoods" cabinet smoker
I'm looking at making a purchase on a cabinet smoker, but I'm in a dilemma of whether to go with a gravity fed model or a manual fed. Does the gravity fed smokers have a larger fuel capacity and therefore longer burn time? I want to go with something that is going to give me the longest burn time on a load of fuel possible. When at competitions I can handle the up every 1 1/2hr to fed the stick burner but on a lazy weekend at home and I want to throw on a brisket for the next day's lunch I don't want to babysit my smoker.
Anything else other than burn time that someone can point out the differences between a Backwoods and an Assassin?
Picking it up and throwing it down on a Backyard Bomber MJH....
