I am looking to upgrade from my vertical water smoker (my kids call it (R2-D2). Im looking at the MasterBuilt Dual fuel smoker at HomeDepot. Any thoughts on this smoker and or suggestions on a smoker that would be better and in the same price range/size. I am looking to do more long smokes. and have lots of room to do a few different meats at the same time I would like to stay away from electric...I love the challenge of charcoal and the thought of having a gas burner to help me out..... Also I am in a family smoke off in may. The menu is BACON and Pulled Pork.... Pulled pork is a easy one. The bacon is the scary one... Any tips and suggestions on making a to die for slab of bacon. Im thinking on doing a 7 day wet cure to start off but dont really know of any true and tried techniques that will guarantee me the best bacon...and the WIN!
What do you think or suggest?

For the smoker spend some time reading reviews. The search bar at the top of any page is your friend. For the bacon look for Bears-step-by-step or for Pop's brine. I prefer the TQ like BearCarver uses. The last belly I smoked for over 40 hours smoking at night and fridge in the day.
