How much is it? I was looking at a cheap one to mess around with as I can afford a nice one just yet.

Haha no ****ing way. That was the exact one I was looking at yesterday! It probably won't keep a consistent temp so most of the pros on here will tell you not to buy it. But I need something cheap at this point and am curious how this one would work.

For $20 more you can get this and it's much better than the Brinkman. It's only available at Tractor Supply.

I have one. I haven't done much with it other than turkeys at Thanksgiving and a pork butt or beef brisket once in a while.
I'm not a pro though, and only do anything with it a few times a year though, so I don't need anything fancy. It works for me.

This is all I'm looking for "something that works" It doesn't have to be fancy.

I had the Brinkman in FLA, but think Stewie is right!!!

Are the tall smokers better? I prefer to have the pit on the side but I could be wrong, one like this:

I've heard condescending remarks about those types, but I thought they were pretty standard, so I'd like an opinion on this as well. I assume the side-box smokers are better at keeping a low heat. Wheres Alton Brown when you need him?

The big green egg is extremely popular and has this same shape, but I'd bet my 401k that the materials to make it are head and shoulders above the cheap one.

They do the job for cheap.

I went out to Tractor Supply, my wife bought me one of these for Fathers Day!
Thanks dear!

Let me know how that works for you, I'm very tempted to go snag one of those for myself.

It was "on sale" for $65. I've got to assemble it, probably use it next weekend to smoke some chicken and ribs. Low and slow, baby...low and slow.

I started on something like that. You have to babysit it quite a bit but they do good Q and you'll figure out if it's something you want to pursue more seriously for $40. That's a cheap way to learn and if you can produce good Q with something that doesn't hold temp well, you can definitely do well on a better rig.
