    The PartyQ won't break the bank............I use one on a UDS when I do briskets.

    I maybe throwing myself into the fire but I have a masterbuilt propane smoker and the thing is amazing. I have cooked over 80lbs of pork butt in it and it got up to temp and held temp very well. I can get between 4 and 6 smokes per tank of propane. works great getting that thin line of blue smoke. I have had my meat cooked on that next to meat cooked on charcoal and stick burners and have had no one be able to tell the difference.

    I bought a Bradley for my Dad last Father's day. It's not bad, but it's inconvenient when you must dump the water bowl out and refill. If you want a true set it and forget it, I would take klitzy's advice and go with a Traeger. My buddy got one a few months back and it is SLICK! So easy to use.

    They look just like a regular grill. Can't stack or hang anything in them.

    I've eaten food smoked on Traeger's several times , they smoke up some good eats....they don't get as much smoke flavor as a lot of other smokers though.
    I just don't like paying top dollar for a product that is made of thin gauge steel.
    They feel cheap and don't feel very well made to me and they cost way to much for what you're getting. IMOP !!!

    Build a drum smoker or buy one of these they hold temp's just fine.
