if that Bandera is an original New Braunfels version. I would grab it. Its much better made than the Charbroil one, and slightly better in fit n finish than the BKSD. But the BKSD has some nicer features like the slide out waterpan and better ribracks than the bandera.... If I had to rate them... . the order would be

New braunfels Bandera
BKSD
Charbroil Bandera.

thanks, i believe that the bandera that I am looking at in HD is a charbroil. I'll run back over to Lowes and take another look at the brinkman.

Does anyone know why if you google Brinkman BKSD or all spelled out that you cannot find them for sale anywhere in cyberland?? Same with the Bandera?

Are Manufactures moving away from the vertical grill/smoker model? Is there something that I'm missing here? Why are they so hard to find???

Apparently, the BSKD is a specialty item that only certain retailers carry. As far as I know, the Bandera is OOC.

My rate is a little bit higher, but depending on where you live in Atlanta, I will put one of these things together for you for an 8-pack of the black Irish stuff in the can.
