I have no experience with either, if it were me I'd do the jambo, less things to break.

If these are the only 2 you are considering, I would have to go with the Yoder for its ability to do overnight cooks unattended, unless you have another smoker capable of that. This is an important feature in my eyes because I end up starting cooks around midnight for lunch the next day pretty often.

Meadow Creek smokers look pretty fine to me... that's where my 2G's would go if I had 'em.

This has been great, thank you for your feedback. Where I was landing was trying to decide between so e if the best products between the two types of cooking I was looking into, offset vs. pellet poopers.

I've had some PM's and I'm really interested now in Lonestar Grillz product. Anyone have any experience with their 20 or 24'' offset horizontal cookers?

Thank you for your input...

The peoria custom smoker 24x48 byc is an offset with standard baffles. Adjustable tuning plates are optional and can be adjusted while cooking.

Did some research on LSGz and there smokers are as well top notch from their reviews and youtube videos.

Lonestar Grillz will be closer to you budget but Pitmaker makes a fine off set as well.

No question...I'd get a Jambo. You might also consider a Klose.

If you want to win, Jambo is hot on the circuit right now. Not the easiest for catering just because you have to tend the fire to keep consistent.

Nah, send your money to Tuscaloosa Alabama! Paul Shirley will build you an amazing smoker for $2k! I know - I have one.

I have no experience with either...

There are so many more choices to look at. I spent a year doing research and finally went with an insulated vertical because an 8 pound bag of charcoal will give me a 14 + hour burn with plenty of room for large cooks.

Make a list of you needs, then your wants, and keep the two issues separate, somewhere in between will be your compromise.

You will choose what fits your needs best.
