Welcome to the board boisegriller,
Thicker steel tends to retain heat better. It’s especially helpful when smoking in very cold climates. But even if you get a smoker with thinner metal, there are ways to account and adjust for heat loss. It all depends on how much money you’re going to spend and how you’re going to use the smoker. If you can’t find what you’re looking for locally, you might want to check sources on the Internet. Some places maybe willing to ship, and others may direct you to local dealers. Check out the posts under this link, they may answer some of your questions: ... light=torn
Also see this link for info. On different smokers:
Good luck.
