if you can still get your money back if you arent happy, a UDS is probably to way to go for price/performance. The CGs produce good Q but i think they require too many mods / jury rigging to be efficient. Even a WSM or a ProQ excel can and will produce top quality Q with a low investment and even less babysitting.
Regarding your earlier comment about not having big smoke flavoring on the eggs, I beg to differ. So far my low and slows on the egg have produced nothing but top quality que. It is NOT a stick burner of course, but i'm getting nice bark (my favorite), beautiful smoke rings, and great smoke without being overpowering.
My Great Outdoors Smokey Mountain gas smoker did pretty decent Q with fairly little babysitting - the food lacks the charcoal bark though, and it was pretty easy to overpower food by doing an extra smoke box of chips.
