WSM may seem more expensive, but it is a lifetime investment. The finish on them makes it so they never rust out, except maybe the grates if not cared for. good temperature control and great capacity, the 22.5" is hard to fill unless you are cooking for a really large group.

x2 I bought a masterbuilt several years ago and while it is limited I turned it into an awesome cold smoker for summer sausage ect. I have built 2 uds and they are the bomb.

WSM. They are great. I have the 18.5", but wish I had the 22.5" so ribs and briskets would fit better.

Been there, done that with 3 Masterbuilt electric smokers.
Go with Weber Smokey Mountain.
Get a BBQ IQ and you will have stable heat.
MB is a bad brand.

I have a Bradley Smoker.....it was my first dedicated smoker and now is gathering dust. I got the bug and now have 10 cookers including that Bradley as I asked for it and got it as a birthday present. My go-to cookers, my main 4.....are 2 OTG 22.5 Kettles, a Akorn and my 5 week old 22.5 WSM. Cooked one of my best butts yesterday on the WSM....did maybe 10 butts on the Bradley a year and a half ago and comparing the products is a joke. Your Masterbuilt burns chips and that is better than the pucks you gotta buy for the Bradley but chunks are a whole new balegame. At least my Bradley has a nice Jim Beam logo on it I can look at.

Also as stated previously.....buying a Weber is always a good thing.

WSM, and if your feeling lazy you can also get a pellet pooper for it.

i went through the same decision process last June and went with the 18 WSM. Without a doubt it was the right move,at least for me. The only regret was not getting the 22...

I had a gasser and wanted a smoker. I am not mechanically inclined enough to build my own. I made a lot of ash trays in shop classes.

I looked at all types of smokers to buy and finally settled on the 22.5 WSM. After a few mods on it to create a fire basket / grate stand, I can use it to cook anything from seared steaks to smoked briskets / butts / ribs.

Very happy with my purchase, but my gasser is getting a little lonely. Only fire her up to light my charcoal...
