I currently have a Vision Grill Pro S and use a flameboss 500 with it. That said, I’m not sure of vision’s longevity and am already finding it hard to find some of the parts.

If I were to upgrade… what should I go for??
3-4 people normally with private events at home (30 people max) on occasion. The largest brisket I can get over the deflection shield is about 10#

Of note, I need to also acquire/build something for it to permanently live on the deck. Needs to be able to do a good 220 smoke or high temp (700*+) steak.

Another kamado? If so, being in GA I’ll likely do primo.
East bake oven (pellet grill)?
Gravity feed?

Thx in advance
 
To clarify: the smoker will live on your deck, you will not travel to events with it?
That is correct.
Price range?

26" Weber kettle would do fine for most of your needs.

Indeterminate on price range. Will say <$2k. Will check the WSM 26" out, but generally not a fan regular kettles. That may be b/c i've only had cheap ones in combination of inexperience on those.

Do they make a WSM 26?

Not that I'm aware of only the kettle.

Another 26 . If that's not enough room look at a Ranch kettle . Something to know about the 26 " Is that the metal is thicker and holds heat very well . I get 8 to 12 hours burn time using the snake method @ 260 degrees .
