I've been smoking about 4 years with a 40" MES smoker. I've been grilling about 30 years. My immediate need (want) is to get into a larger smoker to handle events up to around 100-150 people. So, I'm starting to do homework and checking out different smokers. My tendency will be to purchase far too much smoker for my needs. I was looking at some of the Southern Yankee 4' 12 rack smokers + grill and accessories on a trailer. I still want the smoker, a grill, warming box and a few accessories on a trailer, but the SY still seems like overkill. I know they make a 3' smoker with 6 shelves. That might be about what I am really looking for.
I'm mostly interested in cooking for my church, and my motorcycle ministry events.
Anyone with a SY rig, I'd love to find out what your experience has been like. I'd really appreciate it if you'd fill me in. I'd also appreciate hearing from others that have a smoker similar to what I want. Learning the gotchas before purchase is always better than after the fact.

I'll try to read the stuff already posted to not ask redundant questions. That being said, you'll probably see my fair share.
