I think it's just a case of dramatic exaggeration here. When Andy said such a cooker would be "worthless" what he meant to convey was that the resale value would be less, as explained in his follow-up post. Of course the intrinsic value remains unchanged, so if you like the smoker/Pontiac and have no plans to sell, you are unaffected.

(Of course in the world of cars, retired brands can actually increase in value, but until a "collectors" market for smokers appears we don't have to worry about that) ;)

Saw a nice new G2 Party and a G2 Competitor with stainless doors this weekend. Pretty sexy to be honest with you.

Humphrey's and Backwoods are both great smokers and put out great BBQ. I've cooked on both.

A Backwoods Gater is big enough to do an entire contest on if you plan well.

They have sold the model for years without listing it on the site. I recently saw it listed in the products. It is a lower priced alternative to some of the others you are considering; plus it has different dimensions so that it is capable of holding a full size steam pan.
