Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the WSM and the UDS is mainly a charcoal with chunks smoker, not a wood burner.
I guess the next qustion we should ask is do you want something you can set and forget or do you want to play with fire? I scored a Bandera clone and refurbed it and gave it to my dad. They are some sweet stick burners.
