Having been married before and now re-married, your choice of a spouse is just as important as your choice in a smoker. Check under the hood. Run a few test smokes in it. See if it lasts a year in all weather conditions before you buy it.

I thought I had bought a Lang the first time, but she turned out to be a leaky Char-Broiler.

The new Mrs SJ (and there ain't going to be a third) is...well...

If you took all of the good qualities of the top smokers and put them together, you'd have her.

If you don't want to share your life or your toys, then stay single. Marriage is not for everybody. It involves risk. But I can say that a good marriage is a hell of a lot better than being single.

I don't mind sharing I just don't want to lose all the stuff my grandfather has given to me over the years over a poor choice of a spouse. Then again I'm still in high school so I got time.

That's my go to! I always say, "You have enough money in boots, shoes and designer purses to buy 20 grills!" Of course her reply is always, "You can cook on the same smoker every day. I can't wear the same clothes every day." Then I say, "Of course you can!"

That's when I get in trouble...

Hide it in the basement and bring it out in several months. When asked, just say you've had it a long time.

Or point out that some men collect other women, but you're too busy with your grills.

I count myself pretty lucky. I've been sneaking the odd Smokey Joe or 22.5 WSM or SS Performer into the collection and as long as they were all black, I figured I could get away with it. Last week we picked up a red Imperial Sequoia at my son's place and when I asked her to help load it into the back of the truck, she didn't bat an eye. When we were unloading it she asked if our son decided he didn't want it and I said no, he picked it up for me. She said "Oh, looks nice."

Good luck with your acquisition!

You don't explain it. You are a man and you need as many grills as you want!

I have no pity for you. I'm trying to talk my wife into the idea of a BGE. She's already given me an eye roll, and I haven't even told her about all the 'eggccessories' or that I'm leaning towards the XL.

Now that I know you've got three of them prepare for a BOMBARDMENT OF QUESTIONS! Ohhhh yeah.
