I need help picking out my new smoker as I am doing more for our church and fund raising. I use the one I have which is a Char-Griller 6719 Series Kamado Charcoal Grill and can cook 35lb of Boston Butts at a time. I also have learned to adjust the heat to stay at 225 to 250 for 16 to 18 hours without having to add any more wood. During the year I will be cooking for small groups, 10 to 12 people and then a couple times a year will be cooking for 75 to 150 people. I have been looking at the Brinkmann Trailmaster Limited Charcoal Smoker and Grill
Two of the big keys I am looking for in a new smoker is more cooking area and being able to hold a temp for a longer time. I do not want to have to get up every couple hours during the night to adjust. I know any smoker I may have to do a few modifications. I would be looking to spend $500.00 to $1000.00. I have a gas grill which I use for other times.
I would prefer not to be using a pelet grill as I like using the chunk wood or chunk charcoal.
A second option I could just go and buy a second Kamado and use 2 at a time.
