Default Smoker Decision

In another thread I've been writing about the restaurant process but today I need some help. We have a choice between an ole hickory EL with a cook and hold feature and a JR Manufacturing Smoke-Master. Does anyone have any experience with either of these and which one is going to be easier to use in a restaurant setting. Both are used and are about the same price. Any and all advice is welcome! We are trying to make a decision quickly before they are gone.

My personal opinion, I would go with the Ole Hickory EL. The cook and hold feature is the selling point for me.

The OH is a good machine, but I like a Cvap for holding. So, the cook and hold feature is a non issue. Same cost??

Yeah they're both going to be within a couple hundred dollars of each other.

If their the same price go Oyler all day long.

The restaurant I work at uses the J&R Smokemaster. They never use the heating element, logs only. It is indoors under a hood system, puts out great smoke flavor.
