I have a had a Fatboy, Party, and a Chubby, all excellent cookers. I don't think you can go wrong with any BWS cooker.
Cigar- try making a charcoal basket that sits inside the Party charcoal pan, run it up to a few inches under your water pan or heat diverter. Depending on your fuel and cooking temps, you can nearly get a contest long burn time.
