That was a great test. But I went with the tried and true WSM. The only thing I really did like about the Weber was the porcelin finish. What will the Pro look like in ten years of smokin?

LOL...Jason did a great job in the side-by-side comparison. He was fair and honest and was vocal about the Pros & Cons of both smokers. It was a fun day!

I think the price difference is around $50 - $100...depends on when Amazon has the WSM on sale. You pay a little more for the ProQ, but get quite a lot more space and features.
