I considered this when I bought my Offset with warmer. I considered it would be the last cooker I would need to purchase, I can burn wood as I have a lifetime of mesquite on my property (just have to work for it). I can smoke, BBQ, grill and bake from 200 to 700 degrees in the warmer. Only difficult aspect is it is difficult to move (reason to have a trailer mount).

I like the choice of having smaller cooks and not using quite as much wood if I'm doing just a single cut of meat
I like that too. I even ordered one a couple years ago but changed my mind during the 6 month wait when the job situation looked questionable on the horizon. It looks like a cool feature.

Great minds think alike! I feel like a lot of rigs can do tons of meat well. I feel like the option of going small is a big step up, ironically.

If I go Shirley, I would probably request a baffle block plate to be fabricated so the heat is radiated upward. I'm not sure if LSG offers a baffle block plate. Imagine how efficient it would be if I was just cooking a brisket and a side dish to be able to block the main chamber and strictly cook inside just the warmer. Nice touch. Now, the hard part is convincing the better half to let me loose!!

Plus the two-zone fire ability of the kettle is a nice feature the Egg didn't have.

Anyhow. Cost is always a factor. And IMO, if you want the ultimate in versatility, but don't have $700+ to spend, my vote is a kettle and a WSM. I know, that's two cookers, not one, but the cost is less than a single komado and you can do everything you might want to do.
This is what I tell people all the time. Best bang for your buck and you can do almost any kind of cooking you would ever need to do. A Weber Performer and 22 WSM is $800 and will be everything you would ever need for years.

Yeah, but when people ask about having 'one' cooker the first question you should ask them is if they only want one because of space limitations or to keep the budget within a certain amount? Because if budget is the limiting factor, not space or something else, you can get two Webers for less than the price of 1 really fancy grill/smoker/komado/etc.

Yeah, you'll never find a better value than a Weber kettle.

This right here. Not like a WSM and a kettle takes up much room either. For $800 you have the best of both worlds at less than 1/2 the money needed for a kamado with table.

Yeah, this is the debate that has gone on for years between kettle and kamado owners.
