Humphrey's makes an outstanding quality built smoker.
I compared specs between Backwoods and Humphrey's for a week. I wound up purchasing the Humphrey's Down East Beast which was about a $1000.00 cheaper than the other model.
Although I never owned a Backwoods, I have seen them in use and even gave one a trial run from a friend. In my opinion, I chose the superior smoker and it performs well beyond my expectations.
