Certainly one person's opinion. I think it's slightly nuts to spend $2,000 on a smoker box when you can get similar or better results on a $30 drum, myself.
I made a decision to go back to charcoal for my main grill. The ability to raise/lower the firebed by 14 inches, while having a large cooking surface and lid, along with having working examples in the field that are 50 years old, at 40% off the price of entry, made it a relative bargain for me.
What I think is
overpriced is a Traeger. Spent $930 all in on a Texas with cover, in six months the lid showed signs of rusting and one year in the fan cut out. No way could I say my six year old would inherit that grill, when that's a very real sentiment with the Tulsa-made Hasty Bake.
