SOB-34 from Mike Tiernan in Amarillo for stick.
icookout.com and a Pit Barrel Cooker for charcoal. Still have $$ left over for meat.

Both made in America. Small businesses fantastic customer service.

Well to be honest I would ADD a basic UDS and save several hundred dollars. Buy some Ribs, A Pork Shoulder and some Oakridge BBQ Rubs and a 12 pack of your favorite Beer and enjoy!!!

Just a Thought

+1 on the UDS. (30 pack if it is a big shoulder)

That depends on your skills, tools and time. Finding the drum can be challenging. Just depends on your area.

If you have the skills and resources, then building your own is a thing of pride for me. If not the Big Pappa is the way to go.

I appreciate the insulated ceramic cookers ability to maintain extreme control of air flow and temp. Efficient fuel consumption, and awesome moisture retention. My cooker of choice. Www.grilldome.com. Lifetime warranty is nice too.

Another vote for the UDS. I am mechanically challenged and I built one that cooks just fine.

I had a large Big Green Egg for years, but it moved across town w/ the now ex-wife. I sure do miss it. I now have a UDS and I absolutely love it. I'm not mechanically inclined at all, but putting it together was pretty easy as I had enough patience to, well, be patient as I built it. Ceramics will hold temp like you wouldn't believe, and they're very efficient w/ fuel. My UDS imparts a more "authentic" bbq flavor IMO. If and when I need another cooker, I'll either build another UDS or look at the Akorn smoker from Chargriller. The Akorn is like an egg, but it's metal and comes with a table for $300. Several people on here use them and they look pretty good.
