I did the same thing I went back and forth with the GMG and Yoder 640. Price was the ultimate factor really. That was until I saw the Yoder in person and knew that it would last a life time if care for a little bit. Buy right buy once is my motto. I love my Yoder couldn't be happier. Hope you are enjoying your Camp Chef sure it is a great little smoker.

I bought the same CampChef (perhaps not quite as long?) and the controller died sometime during shutdown after the first cook, as in it would not restart or run the second time I tried to cook on it a few weeks later..
CampChef sent me a new control panel right away and after about 20 minutes to install, all is well.
I advise covering the drip/deflector pan with foil to ease clean-up..and you can increse smoke flavor with an add-on pellet burn tray that sits on the cook grate. that adds smoke during the times the pellets are not dropping.

10-4 on the foil on the drip tray - - - I have the extra smoke pellet tray from MAGNUM (?) and to me it's more trouble than it's worth so I've just started leaving my Pit Boss on the Smoke Setting for some extra time at the beginning and that works well for me. :dont:

At some point I'm going to place a mini-split in the pellet burn chamber and see what happens..of course leaving room for the pellets to drop..
