Been eyeing up a cheap off set smoker, couple used ones around me for sale, to toy with. Does anyone have experience with these? Is it worth it vs what the keg is capable of? I may just be temped cause I'm reading through Franklin bbq right now, but could be fun. If results are no different than not worth it, let me know!

I wouldn't. I had a Char-Griller offset cheapo, it's been retired to the cottage since getting the Keg. Inconsistent temperature, saws through charcoal, etc

An offset will have a different flavor to it.  A cheap one might be fun to play with.

They are closed minded idiots (did I just say that?? YEP!) and they can't see the usefulness of other types of cookers.

Ya I found a char grilled for $50, my idea was using it to smoke off actual fire not coals and chunks but I feel it may end up being useless in the end lol
