I am seriously looking at the Fast Eddy PG1000. I have heard nothing but good things about the smoke output and grilling with the charbroiler. Also this pit is well insulated for those New England winters. It is unfortunately quite expensive so I am saving my pennies. Perhaps by the spring I will be able to pull the trigger. Yoder is on the list too but the FE insulation keeps bringing me back.
Good luck with your search Dirtydingus !
