If you're in the market for a vehicle to haul your bbq equipment, this video might interest you.
I'll also offer a disclaimer that I do own an 1998 F-150 with the 5.4L engine and a 2004 Ford Explorer V8 . During our first several years of competition bbq, we hauled our WSM, Backwoods Smoker, and equipment in our truck bed. A few years later we graduated to a 16' Doolittle trailer that I towed with the Explorer.
If you're buying a new bbq cooker, it's wise to keep your tow vehicle in mind when making the choice. For example, you probably don't need a 1 ton dually to haul your WSMs. Likewise, I'd advise against towing a top of the line Klose offset smoker with your 6-cylinder SUV.
Think about towing capacity, braking, stability, and comfort when making your choices.
