You can't go wrong with either an Assassin or Superior Smoker. I just picked up the SS-1 (fabricated by the same people) and I am impressed with how well it has held its temp, how consistent the temp was from top to bottom, and how the airflow upward wasn't dampened at all by three large racks of ribs on the bottom shelf. Do know that the larger models are absolute BEASTS to move around. The A28 looks wider than the SS-1 which is taller if that is a consideration for you.
At least give Kevin as Superior Smokers a call before you pull the trigger either way.
