I have been using a CharGriller duo w/SFB for some time now with decent results. I've been considering a change in equipment. My current setup is OK, but it's not very fuel efficient, requires constant temp supervision, and is just plain too big. Thinking of going with a WSM. I need input from you guys. Should I make that change? I'm a weekend smoker and I generally never cook for more than 6-8 people. Other equipment suggestions? Not stuck on WSB just yet. Thanks for your advice.

If you want something more fuel efficient, you will want something that has/keeps a good/great seal. Anything from 14g steel (I hear they're ok) to 1/4" to kamado style cookers. I haven't cooked on a Weber performer, but quite a few say it's pretty fuel efficient as well.
Since going from CG to kamado style, I actually cook more on it, because it uses very little lump. Baking, pizzas and all sorts of dinners are done. I very rarely use the stove any more.
If you want to go propane/electric etc there's also quite a few options.
