Default Question: Comp Smoker Portability

Not including the WSM what is the easiest comp smoker to transport without a trailer and only in a SUV?

Yes, I used a BWS extended party and 22.5 WSM for chicken. I swapped out the 22.5 WSM for the Onyx oven at the Mud Bowl.

If, I feel, I need better bark, I place my meat in the rack closet to the top and presto. Feel free to check mine out at the next comp. I got my BWS and Onyx from BPS

What shelf and what temp are you cooking on the Onyx?

You didn't mention a budget. A Jambo?

No budget - I think a Jambo is too large for the back of an SUV right?

I am sure it could be mounted in the back of your truck.

All you need is a trailer hitch.

That is a great idea even if you don't want to pull a trailer. If you get a hitch rack you can load a decent size cooker onto it with relative ease. Most racks I have seen are rated for about 500 pounds which gives you a wide range of cooker options. I have even seen them with ramps built in, just roll the cooker on and off

When I first started competing, I would show up with a UDS on the back seat of my Chrysler 300M. Dropped half of the seat for tent and tables.

How bad do YOU want to compete?

Traeger and Country Smoker each have portable pellet poopers, and Traeger has a kit you can use to make the Junior more portable (Replace the legs for wheels). It might work for others too. Just options.

You could probably get one of those smokers you see at Lowes that are rectangle and have the adjustable grate. It ya wanted to get fancy you could mount rails inside the suv then when parked open the back slide the two smokers out one a mounted shelf

You can even put an FEC100 or BWS Party, Fatboy, or Competitor on a hitch rack. Chubby will fit inside an SUV no problem, but you may need 2 or 3 of 'em for a comp.
