Hey guys/gals, Barbecues Galore just opened near my home, so after
messing around for about a year with my little tiny Char-Grill water
smoker (with good results), I've got the bug to move up a tad.
Unfortunately, when I got there and got to actually do my touchy-feely
thing with the stuff they had to offer, I am now unable to decide. In
the running is;

A. WSM.
B. Bar-B-Chef Offset.
C. Masterbuilt Stainless Electric.

I'm looking for opinions, pros and cons on any or all of these. I'm
concerned about the cost of running the masterbuilt on a long cook, as
my electric bill is already thru the roof, but would it really be much
more than lump?

I don't much care about whether a particular pit is easy or hard to deal
with, 'cause when I cook that's all I do is cook. That's what makes it
fun. I guess what I really want to get is a read on quality, and results
that can be expected.

No question, the WSM by a long shot.

Thanks for the input...that's the way I was leaning when I first went

And check Amazon for specials. Might save you some $$$. BBQ Galore has
a pretty good markup.

Totally agree. After cooking with an offset for years, I
finally sprung the cash for a WSM at Amazon.com ($199 delivered).
For my home needs, it's just amazing.
