Automated Pits - your opinion?

I have a couple of wood burners and would like to add one of the automated smokers - what is yall's vote on the best refridge style self regulated smokers?

Automated as in a rotisserie style pit or as in a vertical Stumps or Spicewine deal?

I would look into Stump, Spicewine and Backwoods smokers and pick the one you like, they are all good cookers.

what are you trying to do? Cookshack makes smokers that will monitor the temp of your meat and ramp down the cooking temps to holding temps (140) automatically.

I'm looking for low maint cooking for when I am not aorund to tend the fire. I know there are lots of choices, just trying to figure out the pluses and minuses of each brand.

I have heard good things about all previously mentioned - any more details about how they operate. IE gas vs. electric, pellets...ect?

I must be gettin lazy, I have always used wood but am getting tired of the whole deal; cutting wood, drying it, hauling it, firing it, cleaning it...etc etc etc. Sometimes I want a good brisket without all the fuss.

AM I crazy?
