Welcome to the ring Wayne!

Lots of good information here on cookers for commercial use, I'll dig up the links.

Good description of what you are looking to do, and what your cooker needs are.

The short answer is the SPs are very good units.

A good used one would also be a fine choice assuming you have some basic mechanical skills (which I would think you have if you own a racetrack).

Very little to actually break down- I would talk to the owners that have had them awhile and get a few spare parts that over time you could expect to wear out or break.

I would also look at Ole Hickory products as well.

There is more of a learning curve keeping BBQ hot and fresh than with most other foods.

Make sure you buy units that are provided with a hot hold feature- they don't all have it.

Best of luck with your venture!

Some good practical stuff here, along with some amusement value as well:

Good review of the OH CTO which for a smaller add-on like what you propose might work out just as well as a larger unit, and save you some $$$:

Start with your municipal or county health department. This link might help:
