I have an old new braunfels side burner like the charbroil one , been lookin at a new one but the one's at home depot are cheaply built , may even fabricate my own
It all depends on what type of smoker that your talking about. Gas I would go with my Snoke Vault 24" now for a stick burner I would have to go with Jerry's Lang 84" it beats everyone else with a hickory stick. It also on my wish list.
My favorite is my UDS. But when I am doing large amounts of meat its hard to beat my smoke shack. Theres something about being able to put 150lbs+ of meat in the smoker that is just cool to me. hehe But my goto smoker is my UDS.
I have to second what he said. Now I don't have a smoke shack but do have a RF that has a little more space in it.
But as said above the UDS wins for the goto smoker. It lights easy its efficient and it turns great Q.
