it adds a "touch" of smoke flavor to things cooked in it
but it's not a smoker
it's a vertical roaster

First off, the SRG is currently unavailable and will not be available again until May.

Now for your questions.  The SRG handles wind and cold well.  For most cooks, you can get a nice smoke flavor(in stuff like ribs, turkeys, and chicken), however, large pieces of meat such as a butt will not pick up a great deal of smoke flavor in the short time that it cooks them.  It does produce some fabulously moist meat which makes up for the lack of smoke flavor.  So there is a bit of a trade off.  All in all, the SRG is a great cooker that you would be most pleased with.

I'd probably buy the used TBE now (see if you can get it for less) to play around with until the new SRG comes out in the spring.  Then "upgrade" to the SRG and pass the TBE along to someone else.
