I have been an amateur BBQer for a few years and after hearing Howard Stern rave about Steve I ordered the How to Grill book and I love it. I now want to learn how to start smoking. I like the idea of the horizontal models with the side fire box. Can any of you pros make any recommendations on what would be a good quality STARTER model and what the costs might be and where I would be able to pick one up i.e. Home Depot, Internet etc... I was looking at the Brinkmann 805-2101-S Pitmaster Deluxe Smoke 'N Pit any ideas on this model? I am totally in the dark here.....thanks for the help!
