Speaking as a customer, J&R Oylers can put out excellent barbecue in a commercial setting.

I have an ole hickory cto that I use for vending, catering and comps. I love it, it's NSF approved, easy to clean and turns out great food. I like the propane assist, but I can run it off charcoal and wood chunks as well.
