It reminds me a lot of guitars. I started playing guitar without any real direction of what I wanted to play. I just wanted to play guitar. Same for me with smokers. I was enchanted by the of "real" bbq. So I bought a cheap offset. As I cooked more I realized more about what I needed. Advice I'd heard from other folks made more sense. I wanted to do overnight cooks, was interested in trying different styles of cookers etc. So it led me where I am now. Plus lot of experience on the way. So no you probably don't need one but will reach a time or capacity tipping point possibly at some point.
