I really love my Weber Smokey Mountain cooker. It's a charcoal bullet smoker, rather than an electric, and it's a bit more expensive than the one you're looking at, but it will last forever. Hardwood lump charcoal and a few chunks of hickory (or whatever wood you like) and you'll be singing its praises. Also looks to take up about as much space as the one you're looking at. Just my 2 cents.

I like the Chargriller Super Pro with a Side Fire Box...Lowe's carries the Chargriller line too.

There's more information about Smoker's than you can shake a stick at in this forum:

So are you looking for an electric or a wood smoker?

Thanks for the replys.I was a lp smoker after getting a good shock from my old electric one yesterday and having the big propane tank installed for the brew house i figured lp would be the way to go.I have access to a big wood smoker if i want to do some serious smoking but this is for small stuff turkey fish ribs that sort of stuff.

Makes sense... I've used a small lp smoker and it works fine. You'll save a bundle on lp with the big tank. I'm on a farm & have a 500 gal for heating. Ran a line for the brew burner. . . . LP that way is less than half what it is in 20 lb cylinders.
