Akorn or WSM?


Should I go gas, charcoal, or electric?

What design should I do? A refrigerator style? A kettle? an Akorn? Something with a side box?

ETA:

I think I've decided to pick between the Akorn and WSM. Decisions decisions...

I have a Weber Q and no matter how low you turn it, it won't go cooler than 325-350.

Not sure how much I care about being a "true smoker" at this point. I just want to be able to smoke some ribs, pork butt, and chicken when I feel like it w/o a ton of hassle.

I prefer using charcoal or wood. The WSM is probably the most proven and has the largest following. If you want truly hassle free get an electric smoker.
