Welcome from SC. This is a great site with lots of really good folks who are always ready to share their ideas and tips. All you have to do is ask and keep reading.
Can you share with us how many folks you will usually be cooking for? What type fuel do you want to use, charcoal and wood or electric or propane? Do you want a set and forget unit or a unit that will let you play with the fire? When we have a little more information, we will be in a better position to give some pointers.
Good luck with your research and good smokin', Joe
