    So I've had the same charcoal bbq for the last 4 years that i dragged home from the side of a curb one day. its been great but its starting to fall apart into disrepair. I'm looking at upgrading to something that is great as a smoker and something that sears too and i'm a charcoal guy through and through so its hard to think about cooking with pellets; but i'm open to change.
    So is there any bbq guys here that swear by what you use? i wanna hear about what you love and why you love it.

    i have a gas bbq. it gets used maybe 6-8 times a summer.
    also price is a factor. the kamado style and pellet styles are in the $1k plus for anything of decent quality and that's out of my price range currently. Currently looking into an offset smoker grill or a classic Webber 22"

    When you do have the budget for it, look into the Kamado Joes.

    so i seam welded and fixed up my dieing charcoal grill today to get the rest of the year out of it and i'm quite happy with the repairs; so i think in that regard i'm going to look at a dedicated smoker unit.

    the kamado's seem ok for smoking but from what i've been reading online and talking to people with them its hard to keep the temp dead on 225 or whichever temp you smoke at. the egg genius for the big green egg does a wicked job remote operating the intake damper but its a $400 option. A dedicated smoker will work like the traeger does and regulate the burn or internal damper without the added option or expense.
