Last weekend, right in the middle of smoking a pork roast (of course), my Camp Chef rolled over and died. It had been OK in the maybe 4 or 5 years I have had it but it did have problem areas, especially the controller. I have actually been looking for a better smoker for months and just did not actually purchase one. I whittled the choice down between Lone Star Grillz and a Yoder, finally deciding on the Lone Star. Unfortunately they are 18 weeks out at least, which means available around Feb. 2023. Yoder has the YS640 in stock, so I grabbed one of those- it should be here next week. One thing I really wanted was a Fireboard controller, which both smokers use but the Yoder only has two probe inputs while the Lone Star has six. But two probes is not any kind of deal- killer IMO. Hoping for the best, the Yoder has a long track record with a lot of really positive reviews and reports. It looks to be well built and accessories and spare parts are readily available. Both smokers are pricey so now that I have the Yoder on the way, and maybe even more importantly paid for, it is very unlikely there is another smoker in my future. Anyway, will report back once the Yoder is here and working. I have a really good looking full pork butt waiting for it, which I had to throw in the freezer when the Camp Chef went south.
