Main question is... what will you be cooking?
 
Burgers, sausage, chicken, fish
(1) butt or (1) small/med brisket or (1+*) racks of ribs, this should be dandy. 
 
If looking to cook more, get bigger.
 
*You may want one of those vertical racks for ribs or you will only fit one rack.

Hey Mike.....did not see a size but it said it can cook 19 burgers lol 

Looks like it's a 20" grate. My smoker is a 22.5", and I'd be absolutely shocked if I could fit 19 burgers on there. They'd have to be some pretty tiny burgers; like sliders, lol. Maybe they meant 19 burgers in 2 rounds of cooking ;)

The biggest gripe I have with my smoker is that I wish it was bigger. (Much like a gun) It's always better to have more space and not need it, than to need more space and not have it :)

Not trying to dissuade you from purchasing it, if that's all the space you think you'll need. Just something to think about, that's all :cheers:

Also.......

(I wanna see 19 burgers on that thing! ;) ) :rofl:

I had the 20 inch model in grey with the cart and it actually fit more than my large BGE. It cooks great and for the price its a no brainer. You can always get something larger if you need it down the road.

I agree with you Savina Red  its a  steal at that price... the Blue colored ones is out of stock...willing to wait as we have a weber & another smoker,

but that is real nice & versatile.

Its quite big & can surely fit 19 burgers as I saw one at Walmart...I can see doing pizza on that too...
