Having been married before and now re-married, your choice of a spouse is just as important as your choice in a smoker. Check under the hood. Run a few test smokes in it. See if it lasts a year in all weather conditions before you buy it.
I thought I had bought a Lang the first time, but she turned out to be a leaky Char-Broiler.
The new Mrs SJ (and there ain't going to be a third) is...well...
If you took all of the good qualities of the top smokers and put them together, you'd have her.
If you don't want to share your life or your toys, then stay single. Marriage is not for everybody. It involves risk. But I can say that a good marriage is a hell of a lot better than being single.
