Hello everyone, I'm new here. Been doing lots of research on an offset smoker. I have narrowed it down to 2 that fit in the budget.

The hark pro Texas pit or the Horizon 16 inch. I like the size of the Hark but I feel like the build quality of the horizon is better and will hold temps more consistently. The cost of the two is very similar.

Just wondering if anyone had to choose between these, which they would go for. I would eventually like to cook brisket and pork butts.

Any opinions or thoughts are welcome.

go the hark, its got more cooking space and their customer service in Australia and reputation is better than Horizon.
i would suggest against any 16" 6mm pit due to poor airflow. if you are going to spend the money get yourself a 20" pit and by a local manafacturer

Really? You base this on what?

Cannot fault my 16" Cheyenne, as good as any Yoder stick pit once you learn how to run it.

it does make sense tough because bigger the bbq the easier it is to run so maybe 16" was just my breaking point and your a better pitmaster than me ;)

Probably just you.... but I what do I know anyway, I own a pellet cooker and don't have a beard, therefore I can't cook bbq.
