Actual photo of my back porch. Holds at a steady 215*. Top drawer has a rack for the meat. Middle drawer has a stainless bowl for liquids. Bottom drawer has a stainless steel colander for the lump charcoal and smoking chips. When it has cooled off, just dump the colander and it's ready to go again......no messy cleanup required! I think I have $10 invested in the whole thing. Found the filing cabinet on 'big trash day'.
That's some ingenuity right there. And in the right price range.

I picked up an Oklahoma Joe's Bronco about a year ago and love it. Holds temp like nothing I've previously had. Will be doing the turkey in it this year.
This. I've used most every kind over the years and settled on this one. Superb baby backs! I cooked a 20 lb turkey last week for church that was raved over. Ham and bologna tomorrow and turkey on turkey day. Never cooked a brisket cause I don't like brisket but great pork shoulder.

A co-worker of mine cooks competition BBQ and uses Gateway Smokers. I have had his food on several occasions and its amazing!

I think I seen those on YouTube. I never knew the brand. Thanks. I may have to look into that. Totally different from the Hunsaker.

How hard is it to maintain temp? I really like this model.
Not at all. I usually let it get up to temp, then go do what I need with my meat or whatever. Then go back and put it on. The first about 10 -15 minutes it fluctuate about 3 to 7 degrees either way. I noticed that its more up than down. I love it and use it a lot.
