Here's a pic of my cube. 100% welded and free custom colors. Roughly the same size as a Fatboy. The color is a Ferrari blue with red pearl and metallic.

Both of these guys are great to work with, not that the ones you listed are not but these guys will do anything you need. They also can probably save you some money. The WSM can hold it's own and that has been proven over and over. Not trying to change your mind on builders but just thinking of what I would do if it were me and were in your situation. With an offset and a vertical you won't have that feeling that you should have gotten the "other one".

I like this option as it gives you lots of versatility. I don't have a Shirley fab but I have a custom reverse flow offset by a local builder(cookers by kev) and a pair of abes smokers. I also have a meadow creex BX50 that I am really enjoying but this thing is both big and heavy!

If even remotely considering an offset cooker,you owe it to yourself to give Paul & Tyler a call at Shirley Fab..Paul is a great guy to talk cookers with..Also SFs prices are a bargain compared to other real stickburners out there.

The UDS is one of the best values in all of BBQ & a really incredible all around cooker.
Every home deserves its own UDS IMO..

Someone was gonna Say it so it might as well be me.
If you have the time to tend a fire on everycook you do and if your a L&S cooker that can run 24 hrs on some brisket cooks then get the Jambo. IMO the flavor difference and Quality of the end product from an all wood cook is worth the effort.
If you're not that dedicated build a UDS or buy a cabinet and add a Weber 26 OTG to your tool shed. A UDS will hold what ever temp you set it at until it burns out so you don't need no stinkin blower so Mo meat & beer money

^^^ I agree with Bludawg. I have a DigiQ and sometimes hook it up to my UDS but it doesn't need it at all. I only hook it up because I bought it prior to the UDS and it's ok for insurance on overnight cooks. I've watched my pit for 8+ hours and never once saw the fan kick on. I also agree with the Jambo assessment. I'm planning to build a stick burner similar to a Jambo next month. If I lived within a drive I wouldn't be building, I would be picking one up from Jamie.

On all the Shirley comments, aren't they booked until June? They have a lot of fans on here but time might be an issue if you're looking to cook this spring. I could be wrong but that's what I read on another thread.

Good luck in your search!

Backwoods Party G2, about $2700. Cooks everything you'd want to do and you don't need a stand for it. I love mine, great flavor and easy to use.

If your thinking gravity fed look at the Assassin line. I have an Assassin 28 and love it. Easiest thing I've ever cooked on. The superior line is built by the same person that builds the assassin. The Assassin 28 was $3,000 and came with the Digi Q included for that price. A lot of bang for the buck. If you have questions you can pm me.

who the heck priced a fatboy to you for $ 3,400? Should be more like $ 2,500 delivered to your door. + $300 if you want a guru. $ 2,800 turn key.

And do yourself a favor. Check a brother on this site named Phubar and what he cooks with a 70$ Weber GA. The light switch cord just got longer

The other mods for the $600 is an 8ball of blow and some hookers. But don't tell his wife!

wow thats a lot of money to spend

if it were me, I would get the $400 WSM and a $400 Ok Joe, if you want a temp controller get that for another $300 or so

leaves you plenty of cheddar for meat.

And you would have an offset and a set and forget.

UDS is a good option too if you want to that route

thats what I would do
