One of the biggest advantages of the Weber is it is very easy to use. The offsets take a lot more baby sitting. So if you like to get some sleep get the Weber, otherwise you may have to get up a couple of times during the night to keep your fire going in the offset.

Back to the pellet smoker. They are the easiest to use of any of the smokers. I have several friends that own them and they really like them. Put your food in the smoker, fill up the hopper with pellets, set the temp you want and forget it. You can pay anywhere from $600 to $4,000 for a pellet smoker depending upon how much you food want to cook.

One thing to consider on the 18" vs the larger smoker is the number of people you're going to cook for. If it is just for your family you should be ok with the smaller one. For me, I really like cooking for others and have ended up cooking for some pretty large groups so I needed a lot more capacity. Note, I started out small and then moved up.

For the price I highly recommend the Weber.
