    My beginner's setup is a Brinkmann Vertical 2-Door that I modified. It is my first smoker and what I have learned the ropes on.

    Im now ready to start smoking for small events such as family reunions, church dinners, etc..

    What's a good intermediate level smoker that I can fix alot more meat on that would work best for those types of events?

    I also want something that is well worth the money.

    How much food do you want to cook in the new BBQ?

    What is your upper price limit?

    Really comes down to budget...you give us the budget, we'll give you the options.  I think any of the available cheap ($200 to $500) offsets with a few mods will be a welcome addition to your arsenal providing more grill space including Chargriller, Oklahoma Joes, Old Country, New Braunfels among a myriad of others.  Of course if your budget is greater than that, then your options become better.

    How do you add fuel to them? Don't you have to lift the whole thing apart?

    Play with them to see how to fill your Coal basket, these things con go for about 12hrs. at a time, and recovery is quick ,open it up for a few mins. and back to your valve setting.

    Otherwise you'll need a unit like this :

    Costly to say the least...

    Have fun with the UDS's ans as always. . .

    $400 don't buy BIG Smokers. You can build nice in that range, think 2+ UDS or find a Buddy with a Welder and a 200Gal Oil tank...JJ
