So, my wife bought me an inexpensive Mastrbuilt can smoker for Chrsitmas last year. I have had fun with it and all of the modifications I had to make in an attempt to actually control the temperature. However, no matter how much I modify it, there are simply some things it will never do, such as an unattended overnight smoke of a large shoulder, etc. My birthday is around the corner, and I am considering asking for an upgrade and would like some suggestions. I enjoy the charcoal style smokers and have attempted to smoke chicken, brisket, shoulder and ribs. this tends to be where I will probably stay. Without spending a fortune, what charcoal style smoker would you all recommend for my upgrade? Thank you all in advance.
I want to upgrade....

Chargriller Akorn, I have one and love it or a Weber Smokey Mountain if you want to buy one or build a UDS yourself with a few tools for under $100. I would buy another Akorn tomorrow if anything happened to the one I have. Next step up is a Ceramic cooker like the Big Green Egg but they are quite a price jump from the first 3.
