I have been drooling over this one ever since the drawing this week. I would ask Paul if they can add a way to block off the horizontal cooking chamber and a way to open up the warmer a little more. Then when you have a small load you could just heat up the vertical. Just an idea and I am not sure if this is the model you are referring to or not. My thought was with this smoker you would have a horizontal stick burner and a vertical. To me it doesn't get any better and you save the space of having 2 separate smokers. I never really liked the warmer being on the other end. If all goes well I will be getting one of these next spring.

Most of my cooks are small cooks for the wife and myself. The young-un doesnt eat too much right now. I have these great visions of a brisket and pork butt and ribs all at the same time but dont know if it will happen that way. How much more fuel does a 48" smoker use over a 36" smoker? Right now Im cooking on a large egg and size has yet to be a problem. I have never cooked on a stick burner. But I really like the look of the 48".
I cant speak for a 48. But I owned a 250 gallon smoker from Paul. It took 30 min to get up to temp and I used about 2 sticks of wood an hour to keep it fueled. The RF design is easy to cook on. My smoker had constant temps through out the whole chamber. Not any hot spots that you had to worry about.
As far as the warmer, I would get it. Its great to cook sausage and sides in.

Thats a very nice pit you've got. TuscaloosaQ does have the separate exhausts on the cook chamber and the warmer.

cholloway:
TuscaloosaQ can pretty much make the smoker the customer wants. He can size it to whatever the need is. He is very accommodating and easy to work with.

pjtexas1:
TuscaloosaQ puts a baffle from the main cook chamber to the vertical warmer. That way you get live some in the warmer. He can also put in a vent in the bottom of the warmer to add more heat from the firebox to the warmer if desired. He also has a charcoal basket in the warmer if you want to use only the warmer without firing up the main chamber. You can grill in it over the charcoal or use it as a separate smoker.

Thank you to everyone who answered. I am really leaning towards the 48" smoker with the warmer. Deciding on which builder was the easy part, picking the cooker is the hard part. I think I did that backwards.
