The unit will cook away for hours without having to be refueled allowing you to spend time taking
care of customers and other things like sleep!
I have attached a photo of my Large Spicewine with only 2 of its 4 racks loaded with Pork Butts.
I know you are not looking at a Large but I love this cooker and always want to share my pics of it.
Good luck with your business and finding the cooker that works for you.
Dang! Now THAT'S a nice set of pics! Spicewine ought to coerce you into letting him use them on his website. Theirs are woefully small (hint hint).

Can't thank you and everyone else enough for the valuable input.
Right now I am strongly leaning towards one medium (for now) and one UDS next to it. Even though the UDS will command more of my time, it's important to keep in mind that I'm offering the folks over here not only good eats, but also a taste of American culture. I can do the longer cooks, i.e. butts and brisket, on the Spicewine, and do ribs, chicken, etc. on the drum.
Plus, as mentioned awhile back, using a UDS could open up some opportunities for side sales of units once people get hooked on the concept.

Cheers!

2-3 UDS would work fine for 50-100 people per day.

Put one of the fan/temp control units in them and you wouldn't need to watch them much.

That sounds like a great deal from Spicewine. I like the idea of the UDS sidekick too. Good Luck!

Well, it took longer than I had expected but the financing has come through and we are officially underway! Design plans have been finalized and we sign the construction contract this evening. Despite getting started nearly 2 months later than we originally hoped, we're still on target to complete renovations and be ready to throw a bash for Japan's opening World Cup match June 15th. There's a lot to do, not the least of which is get a smoker!

Unfortunately I'll be putting an order in at peak season (I presume) so I'm worried I may be looking at a minimum of 6-8 weeks to get one built and on its way here. Still haven't made a final decision on who to go with although Spicewine still has the lowest quoted shipping cost (sure hope that number still holds!). I'm pretty much decided on a cabinet style and am fairly sure I'll be happy with any of at least 3 or 4 manufacturers highly touted on here. It may come down to what's available when and how much to ship it. I've asked before but I'll put it out there again, if anyone has a unit ready or soon to be ready to go and can get it shipped to Japan for under $1K, I'm ready to pull the trigger.

I'll be posting our progress and look forward to continuing to hear your feedback. Thanks for the support!
