Default I'm looking for a Small charcoal grill

I’m trying to decide between two small grills. The New Braunsfel Mini Boss $24.99, or The Weber Smokey Joe Gold $39.00. Any input from the brethren. (like I need to ask)

Is the ultimate goal here small and easy to transport, or inexpensive? If the former, you'd be hard-pressed to go wrong with a Weber, especially if you can find one on eBay or CL. If the latter, again, eBay or CL...

Might be worth a shot.

I see Smokey Joe's on Craig's List several times a week for under $20, so check out CL in your area.

The Smokey Joe gold has side vents above the charcoal. This design seems to starve the charcoal of air. The Smokey Joe Silver has bottom vents that seem to get more air to the coals. The silver seems to have a hotter, longer burning fire when compared to the gold.

Although, the Smokey Joe Gold with a Copper finish is available from Linens N' Things for $ 49.00

"Smokey Joe"...all the way! I've had mine 16 years and just ordered the 3rd set of grates. He goes camping with us every year and never disappoints.
