Default Job transfer to Montgomery Al. Help a Yankee please

Wife and I will be moving from Michigan to Alabama in the next few months. She loves my BBQ, so I have been given permission to get a new smoker. Currently using an Akorn which I will be keeping along with my Weber. Really want a set it and forget unit with 1000 sq or more capacity. Looking to spend 1500-3000 on one.

So, anyone know of any smoker distributors in the area?

Any good BBQ restaurant recommendations?

Any local meat distributors?

Alabama, seriously? Lookup Shirley Fabrication.

edit: sorry...didn't see the set it and forget it part. All I saw was Alabama. And in case you think you know humidity...you don't.

Don't think he was saying anything about Alabama, just that you got the best pit builder in the world in your new back yard. If only you wanted a stick burner.

The Alabama/Auburn deal came up in my final interview with an older polite lady in HR. She informed me I had a decision to make. Then asked me to look at her Auburn degree certificates on her wall before I decided.

Love the SEC down here, just like we love our BBQ. Safe travels and good luck in the new job and with finding you a new cooker. I recently purchased a backwoods and I absolutely love it.
