For the mobile DJ on a budget, the Chauvet Hurricane 700 is a great starter fogger for your setup. It is small and portable, puts out 1500 cfm of fog, has a wired remote, a 0.6L tank capacity and is $20 cheaper than the next model up, the Hurricane 900. But although the Hurricane 700 is cheaper, it lacks a key feature that the other more expensive Hurricane models have. A blue LED tank light so that you can monitor the amount of fog fluid in your tank in the dark.
