If you want to see one in action, check out the "Cooking with Franklin" videos by Aaron Franklin on Youtube.

I would have bought one already, but I've convinced myself I need to save up and get a larger offset
Not that it is a huge deal, but the smoker used in the Aaron Franklin videos is the Old Country Ranch Hand from Academy. It's quite a bit smaller than the Wrangler.
