Default Upgrade my smoker

I am looking to upgrade my smoker, I have a Brinkman Smoke & Pit Pro. I was looking at a New Braunfel Smoker. Do any of you have any suggestions? I do both slow smoke and grilling. Any help will re appreciated.
Thanks

New Braunfels is a great smoker. I just sold my Offset but don't think I would ever part with my Bandera. Replaced the offset with a Pro Q. Have only done two cooks on it but so far so good. It's like a WSM but just a little more versatile I think. And to all you webber fans out there, I don't think you can go wrong with any of their stuff.

Dollar for dollar, you can't beat the WSM. I've owned both the New Braunfels and Brinkman smokers in the past, once I used the Weber a few times, the others went to the curb and I bought a second Weber. If you buy a WSM you will never regret it.

If you are interested I have a Horizon 24" off-set on a trailer. 1/4" steel. PM me if you are interested. Here's a video I made back in 2008. I'd like to get rid of it so that I can upgrade my homebrew set-up!
