The 120 has 5 shelves, not that it is a huge difference from the 100.

Let me ask you a question, are you using the pans for cooking or holding? I have an fec120 and love it.

You are right on with the pans!! What ever cooker you come up with make sure it holds several...I can put 18 full size pans in and then put 6 racks on them for ribs or what ever..If you are short on space, Then hold in cambros for several hours

Any other suggestions, please keep them coming!

A Pitmaker is not made for commercial cooking.
If your serious about making money and saving time you need to borrow some more change and get an OH or SP. All these other units will just hold you back in size.
Your right, YOUR on the wrong coast but i know theres units out there too. Keep looking and it will find you.

You take my Lang 84 it will only hold 6 full size pans due to the top rack hitting the pans and you must turn them side ways which only allows two to fit. When you get larger than these type of units I think it would take a large OH or SP but now your talking $15K and when I have seen them used they are still $7K plus.

We use pans for our side dishes (i.e. Beans, Mac & Cheese, etc). Sometimes we also cook in pans to reduce the mess/clean-up.
