Default Replace Brinkmann Smoke n pit Pro with WSM?

Is $150 a good price for a WSM with a cover? I'm thinking about replacing mt Brinkmann with one.

Assuming that it is an 18.5 inch in good condition, it is a decent, but not great price, but I'd go for it. If it is a 22.5 inch it is a steal!

you can send me the SNP, I will add it to my collection. I am going to augment my SNP with a WSM, but I would never get rid of it.
It just works to darn well

I've spent $150 on a very good condition used WSM.
You won't regret buying it, that's for sure. But if you have room, keep them both.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'd like to keep them both, but I'm the only one in the house that eats smoked meat, so I really don't need 2. I'm kinda torn about giving up the old trusty Brinkmann, but I made a deal with the hausfrau, if you know what I mean.

We really don't have a place for 2 anyway.

BTW, I just put an 8-1/2 # butt on her with some beef back ribs. That'll last me 2 weeks.

Cheers,


Chuck

Get the WSM! I had a Brinkmann SNP for years, but since getting my WSM's I rarely use it any more.
