if i had my druthers it'd be two backwoods chubby G2's, or humphry's.

-solid build
-rock steady temps for long periods of time
-very fuel efficient
-capable in all weather
-compact, "lightweight"
-having two allows for versatility and ample space
-can fire up just one at home for practice, or both if cooking for a large crowd

I compete with one Yoder 640 and two Broil King Kegs ... could get away with only one Keg instead of two if I really wanted two.

Good thread. I don't know if this has been asked before, either, but this may be a sticky-worthy discussion.
When you guys post your favorite pits, try and say why you like them too.

Used to cook on a Ole Hickory CTO.
Great cooker, but a PIA to load & unload when all you have is a small flatbed trailer with a grated ramp.

The Jambo came last Memorial Day.
Rock solid and reliable.
We set the exhaust damper and door once we get the small fire in it and it holds like a champ.
Very quick to recover when we do have to get into it so much.
For a stick burner (I own another one that I use at home), it's odd that you just don't have to worry about it.

PLUS, last year we had a couple of contests where we had to do some emergency re-wiring on it because the fan stopped working. THAT freaked us out. It's nice to be completely independent of any power needs with the Jambo too.

We cook the big meats at one temp and then after wrapping, we drop the temp down 25 degrees for the ribs and chicken. All it takes is a quick adjustment on the stack. Uses surprisingly little fuel for the cook too.

+1 on this. The exact direction I am going.

I USE my old Lang 84. However, if I WIN a free one, I'll use a backwoods...

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

We'll be using two 22.5 WSMs with the Cajun Bandit Stacker in our first comp.

They're relativly cheap. They hold temp well, and need very little tampering when compared to most off sets. If I need insulation, I've found that a water heater blanket works wonders. They transport easily enough in the back of the BAV (Big A** Van).

One of these days I might be able to afford something nicer but I do have a soft spot for the WSM.

We just added the G2 Chubby. We love the Gater. Once going with the guru it's set it and forget it, not to mention it cooks great. We haven't done too bad with it either!

Gateway Drums. I like my first one so much, I just ordered another. Truly effortless to hold a temp and the flavor is second to none!
