Considerations on stick-burners:
1. Have access to plenty of seasoned wood.
2. Be willing to stay up and tend the beast
3. Make sure it has the capacity you need
4. Refer to #1.
I have a stick-burner. I have catered with it and done parties with it. But, there are times a trailer mounted pellet pooper or other cooker requiring less TLC would have been most appreciated.
