I love my Mastebuilt, and while there are many many more that I'm sure are better, the Dual Pro fits my needs. 1st off, I am cooking for my wife and I about 75% of the time, and once in a while some neighbors or my sons family. 2nd Having a bigger unit means wasted space for me, as well as more fuel, cleaning etc etc etc. 3rd making a few mods to make mine a good smoker was fun, including comparing notes - photos with other Dual Pro owners.
I for one could never cook nor consume 6 racks of ribs and 8 chickens and I would rather not freeze cooked meat, so fresh cooked works for me. I've had mine long enough now to pretty much pay for itself, and then some. So until I get a larger family, more neighbors, or a much bigger appetite - I'll stick with what I have.!
