Erik, I don't think that's a great price... and it's not a great cooker. If you can spend the cash for a WSM get it. If not, save until you can. While it may cost 3x the price you posted... it's 10x the cooker. You can make the Brinkman cook good, but it takes a lot of mods and still a lot of work while cooking.

If you make your own sauce hurry up and enter the sauce contest to win a Primo... Otherwise, save your money for the WSM.

Win BBQ contests!
Seriously, you would be surprised at the difference in the finished product.
