Welcome to the SMF Family, Ron!!!
Ah, the bullet...they can take a lot of imagination to get them smoking the way you like. I bought a Brinkmann Gourmet for something to give me a challenge about 5 or 6 years ago. I ended up with a double-barrel stacker 3-4 grate configuration, raised coal-grate, smoke box for a pellet smoke generator for hot or cold smoking...it was pretty well loaded for anything I could possibly want to smoke. I was using a Smoke Vault 24" at the time, and previous to that a Brinkmann SnP 40" with tons of mods. The Gourmet keep me busy for a couple years, but they can tend to test your patience.
Recently, I parted with all of my gassers (just not my game anymore), and grabbed a WSM 18.5" (bullet). Works well without any mods, and in combination with my Weber kettles (OTG-18.5" with rotisserie kit, OTG-26.75") I can cook for most every gathering that comes my way.
Good luck on your quest for another pit. They do give one a nice large grate for preparing your creations. Recipes abound here, and lots of tips and discussions, as well. If you can't find something with browsing the sub-forums or with the ADVANCED SEARCH tool, just shout. Someone will come running...well, virtually, anyway...LOL!!!
