And, before I say another word, I'm just the messenger here! :)>-
They tested three. They didn't like the Brinkman smoker: it didn't have vents in the bottom, it was difficult to add more fuel, and did not have a grate to allow burned lump to fall through (instead ash just collects and eventually puts out the fire. They were also not happy with its thermometer, which is only calibrated to "Warm", "Ideal" and "High".
They had a Large BGE, and were impressed with its ease of keeping a steady temperature, but were a bit disappointed with both its weight and its cost. Their major complaint, however, was the lack of a water pan! They claimed that food off the Egg was a bit drier than from the other two (I know from personal experience that isn't true, and you can certainly add a pan if you wanted).
Their winner was the Weber Smoky Mountain. Calibrated thermometer, charcoal grate that kept the fire going, large door to add more fuel, and a "more reasonable" price of $350 (honestly, I thought those things were closer to $200).
I'm guessing they might get a letter of protest or two...
