Shopping for a stick burner for the patio. Just want to smoke a single brisket or small amount. Was going to get an Old Country Wrangler at academy, but it's now Wrangler II. Not 1/4" metal, looks like 14 gauge, pretty flimsy. Do I need 20" chamber, or will 16" fit my needs?

16 should work for you, but I wouldn't buy a smoker from Academy, as you stated, it won't last long. Try craigslist, always some on there.

Just finished building mine a couple of weeks ago, got some 18 inch and 2 inch pipe from the scrap yard, cost me about $140 with welding rods, paint and all

Budget was 500, now up to 1k. Will swing by bucees in new braunfels today and have a look. Found a place in SA called jeffs backyard. They have a 20" x 32" with the smoke stack at grate level and 12" metal wheels for 1k. 1/4" pipe, this is what I was looking for. 16"x32" is about 750

Thanks!
I'll look at HEB in New Braunfels today. It's across the hwy from bucees. Found another called Helotes Pits in Helotes. Has a square fire box with side loading door. Was looking for one like that.

I have an All Season 24" x 20" BBQ Pit w/ Firebox. They sell for around $900. Very well engineered and easy to keep consistent temp. They sell them at HEB and Bucees'

I've often wondered about them, with it being such thin metal how would it be at holding a temp and how much wood does it take vs. a thicker metal.

I saw a 48x20 at NB bucees today. It's only 3/16 metal, but interesting baffle plate with 4 tuning vents under the grill
