I am too busy doing other chit such as chatting with the client, supervising various stations, tablescapes, etc.

Of course this is my opinion time and time again, I just think stickburners offer the client something special versus an oven that receives pellets

This thread also touches on the subject:

Disclaimer: YMMV
Although I haven't done the catering thing yet, I am in agreement with BBS about the stick-burner. What a show it puts on...
That smell (Lynyrd Skynyrd mod) wafting through the air makes people anticipate good things...

My thought is, if you are thinking of doing this all the time you will want somthing like an Ole' Hickory or Sothern Pride, unless you are doing compititions, if that is the case you CAN"T use those. The best part of those is you set it befor bed, wake up, & its done ! I do onsite cooking, so I use something with a little flare, I built a Lang clone 84 D. Folks that are paying you WANT to see you tend a fire, & do a little sweat'n. Thats why I charge a little more .... they get the show.
Have Spicewine build a firebox on the side and run the chimney up the back so the smoke pours out the top of the smoker. The smoke from the firebox wouldn't have chit to do w/ your cook, but the customers would get their show.

You could even use the stuff that the Vatican uses in their fireplace when they elect a Pope and change your smoke color when you wanted to.
