Hello this is my first post although I have enjoyed thid site for some time. I am just curious about a few oppions on some smokers. While at walmart today I found the new bruanfel for $169.00 and a great outdoors smokey mountain series charcoal wood smoker. I really like the idea of the offset box on the newbraunfel as I have been threatening to my wife about cutting down her favorite apple tree in our backyard (man this thing is huge and she won't help pickup apples or even made a pie) I hate that tree with a passion. I mainly cook spare ribs but from time to time like to cook brisket or pork shoulder. I have done well with my modified gas grill and wood pan but it just aint the same. I love slow smoked meats. If you had to choose between the two which one would you choose? I will only be using it for a couple seasons as when I move in a couple years I am going to have a custom pit made at my new home so I don't want to spend a fortune now on something I will only use for two years. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance
