Thank you all for the replies, lots of food for thought!

I'll break down my impressions by type:

Cabinet: I see a few people suggested them, I was under the impression these were exclusively for smoking, how feasible is grilling/searing on them? I did come across this video from Backwoods and they do offer a grill kit for their cabinet smoker however it seems like the cooking grate sits too high from the coals to get a proper sear (something that could have been easily solved by offering more grate levels):

Kamado: They do tick all the boxes save for the ability to hang meat vertically, might be a decent trade-off however.

Drum: The Hunsaker appears to be a valid option, not a huge fan of the drum style form factor though. Flat lid doesn't make much design sense to me, nor the flat bottom that drips grease on the ground. Lack of side access to the charcoal is not ideal either.

Bullet: Seems like a better design compared to the drum style but surprised by the lack of "premium" offerings available on the market. Modding fixes most of the issues but would prefer something that's good to go out of the box.
