NEVER ask yourself that question.
Don't be that specific.
We don't use terms like "NEED" or "NECESSITY" or "Can I get by?" in the world of BBQ.
Instead, ask yourself questions like:
"Why WOULDN'T I want to be able to cook more BBQ for my friends and family?"
"I wonder how many people I could feed if I had THAT smoker?"
"Why SHOULDN'T I be able to cook a whole hog if I wanted to one day?"
"How much money COULD I save if I cooked more Q and froze it instead of buying processed food for the freezer?"
