Other than some obvious aesthetics. Are there other differences between the Pro(Lowes) vs PBgrills found at Walmart, Academy Sports? Looking to get a horizontal smoker (Like the sear feature). It is just my wife and I so probably looking at the grills between 700-850 sq.ft.

This will be my first experience with a smoker, so any thoughts on things I should be considering are welcome.

Some have different controllers but basically they are the same. The PID controllers are different at Walmart but the non-PID controllers are pretty much all the same. You really can't go wrong with an 850 or 1150 from Lowe's. But the Austin XL at Walmart has been on clearance lately and that is a nice one too with a non PID controller.
