Lightbulb Looking to Upgrade Smoker

I’m looking to replace the backyard OK Joe with something quite a bit nicer that takes less work on the firebox during a smoke. I’ve narrowed it to three pit makers in Houston but I would like some suggestions/feedback from anyone that cooks on an offset or has had a pit made by any of these guys or any other makers I missed. Many Thanks!

Three I’m currently considering:

Pitmaker Hitman 24x48 with upgraded firebox and Vortex Smoke system

Lonestar Grillz 24x48 with insulated firebox (really just to preserve the box longer) and some other minor additions they offer

Pitts by JJ 24x48 with 1/2” firebox
