I was leaning more to Oklahoma joe. The thickness is pretty decent, but the newer ones ...firebox has no ashpan, and where the side door on the firebox opens, it's too close to bottom. Im thinking when I have a long cook, when I go to open the door, hot ash will fall out if I'm not careful. I do like the size of both the cooking chamber and firebox. Besides, I need another smoker. I have a bunch of apple, oak and pear I need to burn!
