OT Yeti Tundra 35 or 36" Blackstone Griddle

So I have a chance to trade a new Yeti Tundra 35 for a new Blackstone 36". I think dollar wise, it's a pretty even trade. I think I would use the griddle more than a Yeti cooler.  How useful is the Yeti with smoking meat versus my $29 igloo I've had for years?  What do you think? Trade or keep the Yeti.

    If you would use the Blackstone more than the Yeti then make the trade.

    I use my Blackstone a heck of a lot more than a cooler.  

    Blackstones were on sale on Amazon at $209.  Not sure what a Yeti 35 cost is.

    Depends.  If wife or GF got it, keep what they got you.  If it was a raffle or something then get the BS.
    If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing.

    Sales promotion. I know better than even consider it if the wife had given it to me.

    I live in AZ and use a cooler every day - still a Blackstone wins hands down.

    Not even a close call.

    Dude, you have to get with the times.  There's these things called refrigerators now.  It uses electricity and keeps items cold.  Pretty sweet.  

    I'd steer clear of the one @theyolksonyou had though.

    There are many options in the cooler world that will likely take care of any needs (branding excepted).  Blackstone for the win as above especially if cooking for a family.  FWIW-
    Louisville;  L & S BGEs, PBC, Lang 36; Burnin' wood in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer.

    Blackstone all day long. Then go get an RTIC for half the price to go with it.
