They're all great cookers. My choice would be the WSM. Weber is coming out with a 22 1n. model soon. It would be worth the wait.

Well BDS's and WSM's are the same pits only difference is one is round and uninsulated the other is square and insulated. Both is over priced. Aint got a clue about the other ones. Now I can show you how to insulate a WSM or any other kinda R2D2 type configuration by inverting a 55 gallon barrell over the top. Heck an upside down #2 Washtub works purty good for insulating one of them thangs especially if it raining cats and dawgs etc. It will protect it enough for guv'ment work. I would not take an offset log burner or pellet muncher if somebody want to give me a free one. Or..I might take it and try to sell it on E Bay.
