Question Trying to get started in VT

Hello my name is Chris and I am a newbie to both smoking and to online forums. I am at the point where I want to progres from grilling to smoking. My smoking experience is limited to a few attempts at smoking ribs. My first attempt was in a charchol smoker (that I could not keep lit or control the temp very well) and the second time I borrowed my buddy's Treager with more success, but was not as good as I hoped. My experiece with the Treager has me convinced that a pellet smoker is the way to go for me. However, I also have another requirement. I need my smoker to also be my grill. This means I need to have direct heat that is hot enough to sear steaks (650+ degrees). My research has me leaning towrd a MAK grill. I could really use some advice.

Thanks Guys. I appreciate the welcome. I am trying to learn how to navigate the forum. Any advice you can provide would be appreaciated. Do members really own all the smokers listed in the signature? What would be the best thread to post on to get some advice about purchasing a pellet smoker?
