Default If you could only have ONE cooker what would it be?

I'd like to hear folk’s thoughts on the topic. I'd like to hear from competitors, caterers, and back-yard enthusiasts.

I'm curious if one smoker/cooker will rise to the top or if the views on the subject are as diversified as any other topic in Q.

Let's pretend for this academic exercise that cost/size etc. is irrelevant.

Post your opinions!

I'd keep the Keg I've got. It's incredibly versatile, doesn't waste any lump if I just want to do something small, and having a big fancy rig wouldn't make sense for a backyard enthusiast.

+1 on the Keg. Steaks last night and doing pulled pork overnight for lunch and dinner tomorrow. Very versatile.

Since you said cooker and not smoker, I would choose the Large BGE.
