Different tools for different applications for most people.
I can't bring myself to get rid of my mini WSM i built from a weber smokey joe and tamale pot. It was what I started on. I am holding onto my friend's till he moves out of his apartment and into a place he can use charcoal.
I have my performers for grilling as well as doing pieces of meat that won't fit in my mini.
And then my UDS is for large quantities of meat.
