I'd get a pair of Masterbuilt ECB's and Mod them. You would save enough to fund the first cook and have a Nice supply of good cold Beer to enjoy in the shade and smell the smoke.
Bludawg, the thing is I am looking to get away from gas and go towards wood/charcoal. I figure that this style would be the most forgiving and if I like it, maybe upgrade in a couple years to a better built one
I am only doing this for family/friend get togethers and the occasional office pig-in. That, and this should be my last winter in the northern states, and I'll be looking forward to hot weather for the next 4+ years.
