Purchased a Brunswick as my first pellet smoker. Been smoking for some time. I’m a KCBS certified BBQ judge as is the Mrs. My first smoker was a chargriller offset. I then built a UDS. My 3rd smoker was a masterbuilt gasser. That master built made me love vertical smokers. For grilling I use my dependable Weber Genius. I consider myself to be an accomplished Pit Master.
