I just did a cut and paste from Jay's site. I know we both agree, no matter the size of the racks, Spicewine cookers are amazing units.

Yes they are.

I think Jay downsized the racks a while ago (after I got mine). A guy I know has a newer super medium and he can't get 3 hotel pans on a rack and I've seen a couple of large cookers with different sized racks.

what do you do when you just want to cook one brisket or rack of ribs or bird?

I will be in Kettering, OH this weekend if you want to stop by and check out the Humphrey's cookers.

Thanks for the offer, I wish I could. My vacation day got denied so that isn't an option now. But my next option will be the Cincinnati event as long as nothing else comes up. I really wanted to go to the Nelsonville competition but thats a no go as well due to the Pumpkin Show here in Circleville.

I'd rather cook 1 butt in a competitor than a chubby. Negligible difference in fuel used anyways.

Interesting.

I'd rather HAVE one competitor than one chubby.

But for competition and backyard, I'd prefer to have the option of cooking at different times and temps and woods.



Just my 2 cents.

My only concern with 2 pits, is one always gets neglected and a neglected pit can turn funky. As a competition team though, 2 is a great idea if you have a teammate with his own pit.

Well guys, as much as I wanted to try to get to a comp this weekend and see some cookers in person, that is now a no go. Work isn't wanting to play well with me taking the time off unfortunately. So it looks like this will end up being a sight unseen purchase unless I can get down to the KCBS event in Cincinnati in October.
To be honest, imo going to a comp and looking is a great idea in theory, but in real world application won't give you much more info than what you get right here and on manufacturers sites. Think about it, when I ask someone about their pit, that they maybe invested a few thousand in, hardly ever do I get a response of "gee its ok but I probably wouldn't buy it if I had it to do all over again." Basically, everyone seems to love the pit they invested in. It is just human nature really. Look on this site for instance, is there really a lot of guys trash talking the pit that they use? Not much. Yeah it would be nice to swing by a comp and see them in person, but it isn't like you would get to actually use any of them, and I doubt you would get a ton of unbiased opinion. Not a knock in any way on fellow brethren, its just the nature of the beast. And besides, I think the majority of people here have probably bought their pits site unseen as well.
